Re: Tartan(s), Sabre, Pearson(s), C&C(s), Catalina(s) - "Chesapeake Draft"
Something that I always look at on boats is access to the engine, plumbing, electrical and seacocks since I do all my own work.
All boats are a bear to work on, but some are MUCH harder than others. A boat with an inaccessible engine would get crossed off my list no matter what its other virtues.
