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.

Back in the water in Grenada - with new main and #2 and cockpit canvas (Santa came early). Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
