Jeff H....I need a little of your knowledge.
Jeff..Thanks for your response. I''m starting to think that the book I''m looking for doesn''t exist...at least as far as monohulls.
But the two that you suggested might provide a start. I also ran across a bunch of old "Practical Sailors" I''ve had in storage and there is an ad in there for "Practical Boat Buying" that has quite a few boats in it - rated and reviewed.
At least its a start! Thanks again!
