First of all, never trust anything Hello says!! (Smile, just kidding Hello - how are you??). Ask around for the people that own the boats. What better source of information?? Take everything anyone says with a grain of salt
. With a few exceptions, people will always tell you that THEIR boat is the finest made yacht, etc., etc, and in the next sentence will see if you want to buy it!!
Sailnet has a forum on specific makes. Poke around there and you will see common problems or issues that people have encountered. If it is a Catalina
, we have Mainsheet - a owners magazine with articles and tech writeups specific to each model. Other manufacturers may have similair sources for information?? I don't know. But that is why Catalina
makes the finest yacht, and are you intersted in buying
my... just kidding!
Hope that helps.
