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

BenMerc makes good points
?has it gone through freeze thaw cycles
?is it on stands or in a cradle
? was it outside or in heated indoor storage
?stick in or out
?how was it decommissioned

Last boat I bought was decommissioned correctly and stored inside under light cover for several years. On survey clearly made a difference.
