Cold Weather

Hello to All,

I am new to this board, as well as, to sailing. So please have patience with me. I recently inherited a 16'' Guppy. It appears to be in decent shape (but what do i know), with the exception of a few cosmetic needs. However, it sat out of water, exposed to weather for the past 10 years. Occasionally temperatures dropped below O degrees in the winter with the average temperature of 25-30 degrees. In the summer high temperatures ranged from 80-90 degrees occassionlly rising above 100. The boat sat on a trailer,however, there was snow on the deck(the boat has a cuddy cabin)and below half way up the sides. My question: Has the hull integrity been compromised ? In addition, any information on this make and model boat(16'' Guppy) will be appreciated very much.

Thanks in advance
