Re: Bit by bigger boat bug - strip the old boat or refit new one?

If you are trying to be as frugal as possible, I would swap everything in better condition off the old boat on to the new. It won't cost you as much in value as buying new will, unless you cause a serious safety deficiency to the old boat.

However, you will now have stuff on your new boat that is going to need to be replaced again and sooner than if you bought new now. You'll have to decide the balance.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
