Re: In what order are parts of the boat most important?
depends as always on the boat you are looking at
do all boats have keel bolts? no
unless wood, you dont say rot applies to glass boats, usually one thinks in terms of delamination, humidity levels, tabbing...etc
CHAINPLATES if it has them
is the mast or masts decks stepped or keel stepped, if decks hows the mast beam or support?
water intrusion and damage in wood areas, this applies to bulkheads, tabbing, floors, cabinetry etc...
another thing on your list
DECKS, what type, cored or not, delaminated or not, spongy or not.
another thing missing
toerails and or hull deck joint is another major factor to look at...
these things are important and of course boat dependant
also on saliboats look at everything related to that first and above all else including engine and accessories...from the top down.
for example if the boat has new rigging but old cracked chainplates on bad bulkheads and water damaged knees, cabinetry etc...what good is a decent engine?
might as well get a powerboat...
Merit 25 sold...Islander 36 still afloat? who knows...Im still in Columbus, and back...I think...jajajaja!!!!
