1999 Ocean Alexaner 450 - Hull Construction
I contacted the OA Factory and found that the OA 450 that I'm looking at has a solid glass hull with balsa cored sides from the waterline up (not solid pvc coring as they used later).
I'm concerned b/c I've heard a LOT about balsa turning to mush and possible catastrophic failures. I am looking for advice about experiences and the ancient question... to buy, or not to buy?
This boat is listed on YW in Stamford CT, $290K. Expecting they will take less.
