Re: Bad crazing on a 10 year old boat?
Yes, crazing starts at 10 years in MD, sometimes sooner. It's a matter of degree.
That does not mean they will fail soon. It may be very light. Additionally, replacing the plastic in a few years is not that difficult, whether DIY or sent off.
An ex-charter boat is also obvious by wear in the head and galley counters; the gel coat will have many small scratches, where as most day-sailed norther boats have only light use in these areas.
