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

one thing I would do before you actually go look at a particular boat is google search for a owners forum group. Chances are if they made more than five of something, boat , car, hot tub , even toaster ovens , there's a web-group dedicated to it! Once there search the site for known problems and the fixes for them . You'll be better armed knowledge wise when you see the boat in person . Take pictures of everything on the boat your looking at , even in all the nooks and crannies. You'll probably only spend an hour physically on a boat but you can review the pics at your leisure possibly picking up a issue .
