Seeking advice - Considering buying a 1974 boat
I am considering buying a Flying Scot as a first sailboat, and read the "prospective buyer" thread with great interest.
I recently came across a 1974 flying scot near where I live in the Southeast, and I want to make sure I don't buy something I can't re-sell later if I need to. Based on the reading I've done, it seems like the newer boats (1990's and newer) hold their value really well, but can anyone tell me if the 1970's boats are hard to sell or if they have any particular disadvantages?
(BTW, I don't know yet if the boat is a Douglas or a Customflex, but I'm going to make sure it's a Douglas before I make any offer, and I'm going to check the deck and hull for balsa core rot - thanks again for the previous posts)
I'd appreciate any insight. Thanks.
