Along with PS I have these two in my bookmarks; Bluewater Boats, and
Mahina. Also found a useful, although dated Yachting Monthly review online
of a boat I am researching. Bing has been very helpful occasionally.
Doing a search of Circumnavigation
sailboats led to a number of decent
articles about various boats. eg Atoms Voyages-Good Old Boats List, etc.
Search terms; Top ten small cruising sailboats, best __ft sailboat,
best value boat, etc.
Don't discount all the manufactures web pages as quite often
there will be useful links to owners blogs, etc..
Dig a little and you might find some decent nuggets. I have...
And asking on CF about a specific boat might get you some useful info...
Forgot a sometimes very useful one. Your local library !
Take your machete and hip boots....
