I am new to the forum and was hoping for some help.
Quick background - I grew up cruising Lake Erie with my Grandfather on his incredible Flying Bridge Lyman (30' Islander named Day Tripper, CYC). I have always wanted a Lyman of my own so I began a search to find a nice runabout, Offshore
, or Cruisette.
I have come across a boat that I am interested in that is in very nice condition but the deck
has been fiberglassed. I am aware that this can cause problems but I think it was done correctly - no signs of moisture that is visible from below.
My question to you all is, assuming the job was done correctly (over plywood), do you think this is a deal breaker? Too much room for problems down the road?
I always imagined having a bright shiny teak deck
to admire while cruising, but I can get past that because its a good boat at a good price
for me. I just need to determine if this is acceptable.
Thanks so much for any assistance!
