Wow! I am starting to look for my first boat and your list is great!

I had some conversations with experienced boat owners and everything they noted as a major item to look for is on your list, such as delamination and rudder issues. I was also told to watch out for models with a rudder that is lower than the keel because when the boat hits the bottom of the bay (as it will in the Barnegat Bay NJ) the rudder will take a bigger hit than the keel will. And the keel should be the one taking the hit.

thank you so much for this list and i plan to print it for sure! :)
