Advice? If you own a Formosa then that makes you an expert on these boats too. Isn't there a Marine Trader for sale here on this site for $20k? My concerns on northen freshwater boats is rot, and delamination from freezing water if stored outdoors in the winter. Down south you get just the rot. If you visit Ft.Pierce Fl.(it's 70 degrees right now, so that alone should be a impetus), there's two boatyards on Old Dixie where you can see both old Formosas and Marine Traders (plus other marques) out of the water for you to compare the results of the ravages of time between different builders.
