Re: What is the age of your boat?

Very impressing the number of voters and very impressive the results:

If we consider a boat with more than 15 years old than 89.1% of the ones that voted have old boats.

That also explains the very conservative general outlook of this forum regarding boat design.

I wonder if the other sail forums have a similar composition regarding the members and the age of their boats? Does anybody know if something similar have been made on the "Cruisers Forum" or in "Sailing Anarchy" ?

Re: What is the age of your boat?

Well, one thing for sure. When you see a boat that has been in production for over twenty years, and boats that are still in great shape at 20, 25, 30 and 35 years of age, you know that the people that built them did something right.

Re: What is the age of your boat?

I am amazed that only 10% of boats are less that 15 years old.

Re: What is the age of your boat?

Which boat? I have a few that range in age from ~25 years old to 6.

Re: What is the age of your boat?

My boat is a 23 year old Catalina 42. The engine has 3500 hours and runs like a new one. The only systems it has that have to wear out on a properly maintained fiberglass boat are the rigging, standing and running, sails, and the canvas.

Almost everything else can be preserved by good maintenance.
