Taiwan boats, any good?

Taiwan has and continues to build a LOT of boats of all kinds. Some of the yards are exceptionally large and can build almost anything that floats.

The don''t and didn''t always use knock off equipment. Wiring in almost all boats from the mid 70''s isn''t that great after all these years.

The fact that a boat was made in Taiwan isn''t enough to say one way or the other if it is not a good boat. You would need to get into specific boats and years to get any more information. Two of my neighbors have 1979 Trawlers from Taiwan and they are basaically a decent boat with all the problems you''ll find and any 20+ year old boat.
