Re: For a family of 4 - Islander 28 vs Catalina 30

I visited the Allmand today. The exterior was in great shape, at least for my budget. The interior needs work. Not a lot, but work. I think it will be sailable this season with a few weekends' worth of work, and then next winter I'll be able to do more. I've asked a local surveyor to do a quick walk-through, which he's doing on Monday. If that goes well (and I suspect it will), my family and I will sit down and discuss everything, then decide whether to go forward with a formal survey, or to find another boat.

I took lots of pictures of the outside, shot a video of myself entering the cabin and what that looked like, then either I didn't take pictures (could have sworn I took some!) or I screwed something up, but I don't have ANY shots of the interior. VERY frustrating!
