RE: Old Marine Trader
Yes, Probably I would expect it. Our TT has not been under cover for over three years (we like it that way). Got any teak plank decks? If they are not well maintained, they will leak. Unless they are in pristine condition, they will leak. *Any boat with wood on it rots. Mine is a 1981 and I have removed plenty of rot from her. I removed the foredeck and bridge teak planking and covered them with glass. The wife wanted the deck wells and cockpit restored. (Yes dear). The teak stringers under the cockpit floor were soft and rotting. I completely restored / replaced the entire cockpit. Its just that you will have to spend time with it finding and fixing leaks. I knew what I was getting into when we bought her. I have one more to find / fix. When I get that one fixed, Im certain there will be another one waiting for me someplace! I dont want to sound discouraging cause you can control it and stop the leaking. Got Patents?
