Fresh water boat to salt water

Hi All,

I hope this in the right forum. If not would a moderator please move it; I almost started this thread in the Gear and Maintenance forum.

I am have been eyeing a boat that has been sitting on Yachtworld for several years now and remains unsold. If I got this boat I would want to move it to the ocean. As near as I tell the boat has been in fresh water at least 15 years, if not 20 years or longer.

What are some of the areas, beyond the usual boat buying issues, I should be concerned with. Is it a good that it has been in fresh water for so long? Could this such a large can of worms that I would be generally better off considering a boat that has spent her whole life in seawater?

Thanks,
Sam
