Hi,

I'm strongly considering:

1974 Swan 41: I'm unable to post links here, but it's listed at oceanicyachts . com

1982 CT 38: I'm unable to post links here, but its' posted at faralloneyachts . com

Can anyone weigh in on:
1) the relative cost to maintain for these two boats? I understand it varies tremendously boat to boat, but is there any reason to believe that if these two boats were in similar condition today, one would be more expensive to maintain than the other?
2) relative blue ocean worthiness?
