Of course, we would have a survey done to make sure that things are sound structurally. Any thoughts, concerns, or things that we should be looking at specifically would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time.
I am curious how the boat shopping went. What did you like? What were your impressions of the "race" boat vs the others?
