We owned a 87 Label and owned it for about 4 years. It had TAMD 60 and was a great boat, well built. At this point of age I would be very careful with the BI fuel tanks. Otherwise I would just watch for the usual used boat issues. The engines were very good, parts are just expensive. It would cost me over $100 just to replace zinks. It was a very tight well performing engine. I put about 1000 hours on them with out any major work.
I would own another one if I was looking for a coastal cruiser. It had a lot if room.
Good luck

Most of the The Taiwanese Tubs do suffer from all or many these issues. The reality is that you can replace the soft decks, replace the fuel tanks, replace the poor wiring, grind the blisters out, reset the windows, replace some poor stainless steel and you will still have saved some money from what you would have spent on the BMW's and Lexus's of the cruising world.

A key would be to find one of these so called TT's that has had most of these issues already addressed, get a good engine survey as well, and you will have a great boat with thrice the room of a sailboat hull.

Alaskan and Texan were comparing state size. Texan bragged that in Texas it took a train two days to cross the state. 'How about that?' the Texan asked.
Alaskan responded, 'Slow train?'
