Don't see the Whitcraft. Haven't read much about the brand tbh.
Looking at a mid 80s Uniflite and a late 70s Chris Craft Commander. The Chris Craft looks to be a bit higher quality (just from pictures, really hard to tell). Both are diesels, both have non-working generators (CC has a generator
that needs a new rotor stater assembly, I'm told I should count on replacing the whole genset), the CC has an AC leak and the UNF has a few electrical
gremlins (one of the engines can only be turned off from the flybridge). From what I've gleaned, both are ready to be lived in and can be...um...what's the verb for "driving" a motorboat?
Everything else being equal, both brands are fairly close in quality, no? I made a low offer on both, I expect they'll be within $4k-$7k in price
Since I need a house first and a boat second, it "seems" like one of these would be a good deal. Live in it, let it pay for itself, use that "saved" money
to fix it up for some cruising.
