killarney_sailor is on a distinguished road
I would also be leery of boats built just before a company went into bankruptcy (most did unfortunately). There is just too much chance of corners being cut as a company attempted to get a boat out the door to maintain cash flow. You would have to check the history of individual companies but this was a common problem in the late 80s and into the 90s.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
