Re: Important Things (You Know Now), To Look For When Buying A Used Sailboat?
With all due respect this question shows someone who is clueless about boats and what they want and what they need.
What any member on SN wants, needs, and would or have looked for in a new to them boat is completely irrelevant to YOU/
Go back and do your homework.
I think the OP asked a good question, and I think the answers given here in this thread have been quite helpful and on point. This is his doing his "homework". As you have pointed out, no one knows everything, and sites like this provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience. The OP wasn't asking "tell me what I should be looking for in a boat"; he was asking "tell me what you missed when you were picking your boat". Not everyone's experience will be germane to his own boat search, but it may be helpful to someone else's. At the very least, they are all good reading.
