I am moving from Atlanta to the east coast, and am trying to decide if I should now sell my C36 Mk1 1984 or move it with me to the coast and keep it forever.
My hesitation in keeping the boat is simply its age and that it has a few small (quarter-size) blisters. One respected book author has stated that fiberglass has a useful life of about 40 years and gelcoat about 20 years...
...but then I see boats for sale on yachtworld.com from the 60's, so what's up with that?
Obviously I don't want to pour a lot of money into an old boat whose hull and/or deck is going to fall apart in a few more years, having served its "useful life".
