Question Mirage 24 deck - solid glass???

Hey all,

I saw this old post (copied below) where Gary M says that the Mirage 24 has a solid fiberglass deck. Does anyone know if this is accurate? I am currently trying to choose a boat and this would be a BIG + factor. I can't find any other boats besides west coast triton 28's that have a solid (no core) deck.

Thanks,

Motti123

Bakeapple, seriously, take a good look at a Mirage 24 as I mentioned earlier. I have sailed on just about every boat mentioned here and for what you want I don't think you can do better,
There are a lot of them around the Great Lakes and Eastern Canada. You should be able to get one for about 4K but it will need some things. They are a very well built boat with solid glass hull and deck so no worries there. They take heavy weather very well and are big enough to stay on. A great boat for a novice.
