i was wondering if anyone could tell me thing to look for in when i buy my first lake erie boat. i have found a 1973 reinell 22' fiberglass boat with hard top. all i really know about the boat is that it was winterz two years ago and it sat out side uncover for those two year. so just need to find out what i should look for in the boat before i make a good dission or a bad one. any help will be good help.

Pay the money to get a survey done on the boat. It's worth every dime if you don't know what you are looking for. I would start with the stringers in that old of a boat. If it sat outside in the Ohio elements I would steer away from this boat. Water freezing in every crack and crevis had to of created problems.

If someone let that boat sit out unprotected for two years they probably didn't keep it properly maintain either. Take krusty's advice and pass on a high potential money pit.
