what determines a coastal cruiser???
Sorry , I meant boats built in the sixtys and seventies.When you find a boat your interested in just start asking questions.Here or type your boat in question into google and you should get alot of information.Most boat brands have thier own owners groups where you can find alot of info , better yet you might get a chance to go out on one of these boats and decide for yourself if you like the way it sails. I still think the real question for you is what to do with the wife and dogs. thomas
