You might also ask about blisters and any remediation of them.

Re: Searching For The Right Live-Aboard Bahamas Boat

P 35: Great classic with a pretty sheer line. She's designed to the racing rules of the time so she'll heel quickly which will increase the waterline length due to the overhangs but might scare the inexperienced. Maybe not the prettiest interior but functional. Balsa cored decks so be really careful there. This is a perfect example of a good older design that will still do what you need it to & get you wherever you want to go. There are a lot of boats like this so it really comes down to condition. Don't try to save money by purposefully getting one that needs work. Spending more to get one in great condition will actually save you a lot in the long run.
