Also, anything specific to check for on these boats when inspecting them? I've thoroughly reviewed the boat purchase tips thread, but I'm wondering if there's anything especially troublesome about these boats that I should pay special attention to.
Inspect the keel bolt and cable. Also watch for deterioration in the cockpit sole from the inside especially around the drain. Make sure there are backing plates on the cleats.
