Thanks guys. There is commonality in these vessels that of having an aft cabin or quarterberth and affordable to me. That was the reason for my post; to get knowledge of the differences and starting with the sorting out of which ones were well built. I had actually viewed a Contest and thought that the hull to deck joint with the vertical glass overlap through bolted through the rub rail and then glassing over the bolts seemed like a good configuration. What would be the prefered hull to deck joint?
