Re: Shopping around for the 10-20yr boat, need some info on the CS33's
I guess we've had differen experiences. I've only surveyed about 25 Mirage boats.
Seems like it. Surprised at only 25 considering the large number of Mirage built boats around. They were the boat builder I knew best. Owned three of their boats myself and sailed countless miles on friends Mirages. Not the very best, but always a lot of boat for the money.
One thing I forgot to mention re the Mirage 33/35 - There were failures initially of the stem plate casting at bow - Most should by now have been upgraded using a kit Mirage supplied. It was a design fault in the original boats. I forget exact details, but I think it involved adding a U-bolt and some re-inforcing plates.
