Hi Nadir, welcome aboard.
You probably will not find anyone here who will recommend you purchase a boat, essentially sight-unseen. However, I don't think your post is as "out there" as mr dooley.
I am not familiar with this particular boat, or the shark; am I correct in thinking the shark is something of a centerboard skiff deal? If so, I think the Ericson might be a bit different for you; but I don't know.
Your choice really depends upon how much money the new boat costs, and how much you are willing to risk.
I hope someone can help you more than I; I just wanted to chime in and let you know that we aren't ALL that curmudgeonly. LOL
I got an Old Fat Boat

Hard In The Chine, but Soft In The Transom
I Love Her Well, And She Must Love Me
But I think It's Only For My Money
