My wife and I are seriously considering the purchase of a '72 Colin Archer design 32' cutter. We have no questions about the safety profile of this design but need some reassurance re: the hull. The hull description follows as per the survey: "The rugged triple diagonal Iroko wood in resorcinol glue construction utilizes copper rivets throughout and is encapsulated in with fiberglass and epoxy with a final layer of dynel and epoxy. The decks were covered in 2002 with roving woven glass and epoxy." And "The constructon reportedly consisted of an middle layer of 3/8' diag planking sandwiched between 3/8" longitudinal carvel planking as an inner and outer layer."
Is it reasonable to expect this hull to hold up, with proper maintenance, for the next decade, or even longer? Anythings special to watch out for?
Thanks for your comments.
