I've never seen an old hyaplon boat with out a dozen patches.

I've never seen an old Maravia without a leaky floor.

I've never seen an old Aire that didn't look used like a two dollar whore.

Any old boat that I've seen that looks in great shape was stored in the shed 99% of its life.

Just like any thing, if you use it, its gona get beat up sooner or later. If you just look at it, it stays in good shape. That's just what I've noticed.

FWIW I have a serviceable Hyside self bailer that is 33 years old. And it takes up less room in the garage rolled up than any other of my rafts.

AWW now come on; since when do we get to pick on traditionalists in our midst?

I mean, this ain't the place for it anyway, but I suppose you think wood oars are obsolete and should be scorned for new fangled plastic?

Or wood Dory boats should be........burned?

Or that tightie whities mean you're some kind of commie?
