Re: Are Boats Built in the 70's Just Too Tired
I just noticed there are quite a few more comments here than before. Funny I didnít get the usual email notices of new comments.
Anyway I want to thank all for their comments. Everyone was thoughtful and helpful.
What I take away so far is that the consensus is:
70s boats can still be solid choices if well maintained.
Be prepared for significant maintenance
My budget should be increased (for maintenance, or newer boat, or both)
Other food for thought.
look for mid 80s boats for better systems
Survey is important but personal inspection is just as vital
