Had steel boats for over 25yrs, 3 different ones, if I was buying a 2nd hand one the first place to look is the bilges, if they are rusty and tatty and have water in them ,look somewhere else, if the bilges are good it gives a clue to the rest of the boat.the maintenance is no more than a gps, if you lose a bit of paint stick a piece of pvc tape on it till you have time to fix,the best part is that they are so solid, you can walk from one side to the other and they dont move,if your waiting stationary and its windy they just hold the position, if I can be of any further help please contact.
Nothing up with filler if it's been applied to fair the boat, most steel superyachts power and motor are faired (with filler) it's the treatment of steel under that counts.
