Re: Newbie

Thanks, TJC45. When I find a boat I'm interested in buying I will have it surveyed. I'm a fair mechanic, was a licensed auto mechanic for years, built a kit airplane, 30+ years as a computer hardware jock, but don't know much about sailboats. I'll hire that expertise.

In the mean time I will continue to do research. I have looked at other similar sized boats, O'Day, Hunter, Catalina for instance. We intend to visit more marinas when we return to Florida and strike up conversations with folks on their boats. So far everyone we've talked to have been more than happy to show off their pride and joy.
