Northstar 26

Can't seem to find a vast amount about them, any thoughts? One up for sale near me that seems a reasonable amount of boat for the money.

The T-bird's a much better boat, IMO. The Hughes/Northstar 26, despite it's good lineage (S&S - as was most of the Hughes line) is a pudgy, not-so-pretty boat that looks too short for it's other dimensions (again, my opinion....)
