I am brand new to the v-drive scene. I am wanting to purchase a V-Drive boat but I am not sure what I need to know. The boat that I am looking at is a 1977 Rayson Craft 18LP Circle Boat. The ad says that it is a custom built by Jimmy Gaskins for Don Pierce. Could some one please help me know if this is a good boat or not. I am going to look at it this weekend. Thanks for all your help!!

Some things are visual and others you need to feel for. Check where the stringers attach to the floor and the transom, you can tap the inside and outside of the stringers and tell if the fiberglass is seperated from the wood. Also on the floor if it is delaminating it could look like it's bubbled up. Check the bulkheads and make sure they are still glassed good.
