Default Older Hulls

Are there any reasons to shy away of purchasing an older hull, lets say around 1988, 89?? Does the hull loose its integrity at all??
Thanks

I'd have to say it depended on who built it.

I've got a 73 that continues to be surveyed flawlessly. Every time I hear "Wow. They just don't make them like this anymore." Then again, not many 28 foot boats these days come in at 7,000 LBS.
