Hi

I recently inquired about a yacht built in 1964 out of Fibreglass.

I would have thought it would have been at the end of its working life given its age and the seller has advised that it has stripped back and epoxied two years ago.

I would like to learn what this really means in terms of the life left in the hull... how good expoxies are or if this boat should be avoided althogether.

Thoughts welcomed!

Would a good surveyor be able to help assess the life expectancy of the hull and what should I ask them for...

I am guessing I will need to know the type of resin used etc.

Thanks for the great posts guys
