Re: Are Boats Built in the 70's Just Too Tired

Well, the GulfStar 50 we lost on our way to Europe was a 1975. We had spent 5 years and well into the 6 figures upgrading and restoring as much as we could.

So, though I wouldn't say not to buy a 1970s boat, I would support going further than we did and also replace the CHAINPLATES!!!
