Re: Going to look at a boat

Good luck, try not to fall for the first boat you see, at least have a look at a couple of others, hard to compare with a sample size of one. Get someone along with you that either knows a bit about sailboats, or even just another pair of eyes that isn't going to be involved in the sale. They can often see things you look past, don't notice or are just blind to in the excitement. The Ranger is a decent boat, assuming this is a reasonably OK example. Make sure you think about the things that aren't on there that you might want in future, they are the bits that get expensive - stove, electronics, bbq etc.
