Another resource for boat make information is David Pascoe's website. Pascoe is a retired marine surveyor and he has generated a lot of material-- books, etc.--- about boats. His reviews can be very useful in helping determine what to be on the lookout for when contemplating a particular make and model.
However..... his reviews should be treated as a single data point as they do not always reflect a general reality. He is VERY opinionated and bit full of himself, so keep that in mind when reading his stuff. However, his writings can be a very useful resource to someone contemplating buying a boat. http://www.yachtsurvey.com/boatrevie...boatreview.htm
There is a pretty good Passagemaker article on "Taiwanese Trawlers," the generic name used for the large number of cruisers produced in Taiwan during the 70s and 80s. These include makes like CHB, Puget Trawler, Marine Trader, Roughwater, Albin etc. The article talks about the good and bad aspects of these boats. http://www.baris.net/boats/lf3/pdf/a...e_trawlers.pdf
