We too have been looking at larger boats (signed on the dotted line for a 36'er yesterday) and saw a 41' Coronado, online. First things first, the Coronado 35 was a center cockpit
, but was my understanding that the 41 was an aft cockpit
, and the better sailing of the 2 models. Anyhow ... the ad for the 41 that I looked at was quite interesting. There must have been 30 photos of a truly great
... wow! All that space and nicely decorated too! Then buried in the text was "30 to 40% delamination
below the waterline" not even sure why I continued to read about it after that, but in the last few lines they mention (as though it was an afterthought) "the owner reports some soft spots in deck" .... YIKES! This is gonna be the epitome of what is known as "a hole in the water" for someone ..
