Dodgeboatguy, You can find some excellent production cruisers, as camaraderie mentions, and no blanket statements either,- save one. If you search takes you to those older thick hulls of the late 60's and early 70's look for the dimenished hardware and amenities that are often found on the 1974 models. This is the time when fiberglass (an oil product) costs increased by 400% (Carter years, oil cartel, gas lines) and many of the production cruisers took some drastic cuts in what they were providing. 'take care & joy, Aythya crew
