I never had the benefit of a sea trial when we bought our 1967 Tartan 27' but the PO did spend a day with me discussing engine maintenance and other systems which I tape recorded. We did have a land based survey done and the PO had taken very good care of his old boat PLUS there was no broker involved. Our sea trial consisted of taking the boat about 100 miles west up LI Sound.
I would have liked to do a sea trial as a shake down sail though.
Next time perhaps.
