It has had many poor repairs and some poor storage in the past. It was
inside in the dry for almost ten years and some planks with poor grain
where split pritty bad. The paint was marine with a high copper bottom
paint but the bright work was all but gone. Sister ribs where poorly
done and rot not tepaired or stoped. Think how long it would have
lasted if taken care of properly rather then half way. There are
lightnings 50, 60 and nearly 70 years old in good shape.
