New to the list, looking at Sabreline 36

Hello group,
My history includes sailing Catalina 27's, Catalina 34 and last owned boat was a Gulfstar 50 sloop which was unfortunately lost due to Hurricane Frances many years ago. I am now looking at purchasing a 1991 Sabre Fast Trawler 36. Saw one yesterday and like the layout. The boat does have some stress cracking in the gel coat on the inside of the gunnel as well as some around the stanchion bases.... should I be overly concerned about them? Also the boat has twin Detroit Diesel engines (225 hp each) - what should I be on the lookout for regarding these. As I've only had sailboats any information you can contribute will be appreciated greatly.
Regards one and all,

Aloha and welcome aboard!

Good to have you here. I don't know much about Sabre or Trawlers to really help but I'll bet you get some messages from folks that do.

kind regards,
