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

I don't think you will have any problem . In many ways boats form that era are far better cruising boats than more "Modern' designs in practical terms.
Check out the sea of Cortes, especially San Carlos for incredibly cheap boats which have been abandoned in a yard there. A friend was offered an Alberg 35 for free there. Check out the cruisers internet chatlines there.
