Re: What do you wish you had known before buying your first boat?

Wish I had realized the wisdom of a wheelhouse, and inside steering. Wish I had realized how easy it is to build a far better anchorwinch, blocks , aluminium hatches, etc, than commercially made ones. Wish I had understod the importance of good insulation and a good, airtight woodstove .
