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.
Just for fun, no guessing on my part this time but actual numbers (I just counted my files) of some brands surveyed out of a total of 4,566 ...
Aloha - 24
Mirage - 30
CS - 197
C&C - 168
Beneteau - 84
Catalina - 65

The other 3,398 are made up of this list of Power Boats surveyed.
and this list of Sailboats Surveyed

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
