Buying a used boat

Hi Skip, the Beneteau is a great sailing boat for light air and mid-range conditions and can tackle the heavy stuff with some experience and knowing when to reduce sail before things get too hairy. You mention that you disliked the picture window, just remember, if you don''t like the looks of your boat you are already on your way to looking for your next boat. I get the feeling you know what you are looking for ....and I envy the fact that you can look at all these wonderful boats and not worry about selling one. Take your time, sail them , and decide whats important to you. I suggest you read in sailnets main area under "Buying a Boat". Read "How to choose the right boat" by Don Casey. It will clarify some guide lines one should follow in choosing not only a good boat, but one that fits your lifestyle, and what to consider when getting input from outside sources like us....Rick R

Also forgot to mention that the Beneteau will feel a bit more tender (heels more) in moderate conditions then the ComPac...Not dangerous, just different boat attitude resulting from the design.
