Re: Important Things (You Know Now), To Look For When Buying A Used Sailboat?

I'm glad I got a survey!! It saved me in the long run. The boat was 15 years old, which meant new sails and rigging since everything was original. The boat had low engine hours and had barely been broken in according to the manuals.

My #1 thing though is finding someone who can work on boats that's reliable and other people recommend. I've had a really hard time finding someone. Or go to some seminars if you want to do your own work & have never owned a boat. Youtube is my BFF
