Listen, IT'S A BOAT. You like it you buy, you don't like you don't buy. Simple.
I have seen a lot of really really BAD BOATS out there that have wonderfull web pages and the best references MONEY CAN BUY!!!!!!!!!!Just buy ANY unbiased American Sail magazine, the list is long, Hunters, Macsomethings, Catalinas, Jeaneaus, you name it. There is good and there is bad.
BOATS ARE ALLWAYS BAD, otherwise the industry would be bankrupted.
Stop that uhhhh I don't buy if they don't have web page, uhhhh I don't buy if they don't have spare parts for my cleats or for my shower, uhhhh I never heard of it, uhhhh its foreign must be good, uhhh this uhhh that.
(I think that you guys in the US have become too much catalog buyers). Please no offense in what I said, ok???
PLEASE. go look at it, and get-r-done (bought a Larry The cable guy DVD, sorry).
Over here we have tons of "obscure" yachts that beat then "s****" of Benetau, Jeanneau, Dufour, Bavaria, you name it.
Just because they sell big time does not mean they are GOOD, it just means they sell cheap (obviously a compromise here with quality), and there is a lot of SUCKER buying them, because they read the "unbiased" SAIL report, or the "unbiased " WEB PAGE.
Here, we still buy boats according to the need,and with the heart.
I am having a VERY VERY VERY bad week, so I am sorry if I offended any one.
