Re: The Joys and Pitfalls of Buying a New Boat - Part 1


If you are diligent, you need not worry greatly about buying a pig-in-a-poke.

There are many, many threads here on SN that are primers for those contemplating purchasing a used boat. I'd post a link or three, but for some reason the buttons to do so are missing. Do a Google search with the term "survey" and youll get lots of results. How-to's by posters SailingDog and BoatPoker are recommended.

If you'd prefer a book, Don Casey's "Inspecting the Aging Sailboat" is decent.

Shoppping for a boat is a major endeavor, and can be a full time job. Good luck in your boat search.
