Re: nauticat

Can anyone with experience owning a Nauticat tell me what to look for in a mid-1980s Nauticat 40 or 43 (as far as I can tell, the only real difference between these boats is three feet). What bits of these boats need to be overhauled or repaired after almost three decades, assuming the boat has had good continuous maintenance? What bits are known to fail for lack of maintenance or even with normal maintenance? Importantly, what should one look for when doing an inspection, apart from the usual stuff, and what might a surveyor miss?

Thanks in advance.

Re: nauticat

check tops of mild steel fuel tanks for rust, pull and inspect all deck attachments for rigging, they are a bolt through fitting and can be susceptible to crevice corrosion

Re: Nauticat

There is a Nauticat users group (forum) on Yahoo groups. It has many (thousands) of posts on many topics you might find interesting if you are considering purchase of a Nauticat.
