Question When buying a boat...

Hi everyone,

I am doing some research for a school project.

When you are looking to buy a boat, what is the first thing you do ?
Where do you look for boats, what do you especially look for, what would make you definitely want or not want to buy the boat... ?

Thanks a lot for your help !

Best,

Best,
The first thing I would do is:

click on "Search" in the little green bar above
drop down to the 3rd line from the bottom where it says "Google Custom Search"
type in "which boat"

and read through some of the HUNDREDS of threads where many people give their opinions on what to look for in a boat.

I really don't mean this as a smart-ass "use the search" response (OK, maybe a little). But there really are tons and tons of threads on this.

No apology needed. I just had a good idea what search criteria might yield a good result. And it helps to know which search field to use (the top search box don't work worth a flip).
