I think one BIG issue is water temps the boat lives in and whether all year long or not. My boat lived in a Florida canal for 22 years with virtually no on the hard time and had major first liveaboard sailboat (Cape Dory) in Ft Lauderdale had blisters and most were on the sunny side of the boat. My second liveaboard was a Silverton, kept up north, same vintage and no blisters...

Sure resin and mnufacture are really important...but IF a boat may blister....warm water and all year immersion play significant roles too.
