Welcome from the Great Lakes Bernie. I think Sundowners are pretty well thought of. MurrayM is from your area and has one, he may pipe in. Check out the archives by searching Sundowner. Here is one thread.

Hi Bernie

We're in Kitimat on BC's north coast, so not quite in your neighbourhood. We've had our boat for ten months now and have no major complaints. Solid. Sensible. No expensive inessential stuff.

The only complaint I might have is how dangerous it can be to get from the pilothouse to the foredeck in even slightly wavy conditions...will be adding additional grab rails soon. Oh, and the teak decks are getting kind of tired...

Let me know if you have any specific questions.

Here's a rarely visited forum that has some really well researched historical information in the older threads (can take a long while to load);
