You are dead right about the size. Complete error on my part. the 422/425 nomenclature was purely a model distinction as MkI/MkII. In fact as you say the changed were predominantly interior. Basic hull was identical I think.

My favourite of that series was the 425 which was a bit later than the 422. Very similar boat except for the extra couple of feet. Suffer from the usual shortcomings of centre cockpit boats and could do with a bit more water capacity. Not sure about the 422s but most 425s have in mast furling which I personally don't like.

bamse Thanks for the head's up. I hate soft spots in the deck. They can be a real bear to fix.

kentheighton She needs a new transmission. Rudder has water in it. Maxprop needs to be rebuilt. There are a couple of soft spots in the deck.

Moody 422 Things to Check out

I'm going to be seeing the Moody 422 in Seattle next week. Anything about Moody's in general I should check out I'd like to know. Also if there is anything about this particular boat I should check out with the broker or my mechanic I'd also appreciate. You can send a pm to me if you like.

thanks,

Don
