Wingedsig-

My guess, since it is a 1984 31' boat, is that it is not one of the Cherubini designs. The Cherubini designs were much more well regarded than the early non-Cherubini designs IIRC. Personally, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

If you're still interested in the boat, you might want to get Don Casey's Inspecting the Aging Sailboat and read it. It has a pretty good checklist for you to follow. Get it...go to the boat with the checklist and see how it does.... if it passes, then the boat is probably worth looking at further.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
