shopping a mainship 30

Thanks for the response.
The 99 has a cummins 220 in it w/ 970 hrs. I have heard allot of good about this engine. The new Yanmar in the 05 is a 6LP and the vibration at this point is most of the time. I believe the new motor which has 81 hrs on it has rattled loose alittle and the motor mounts I saw on the Yanmar site had rubber absorbers which this one lacked. All in all the newr model is in much better condition but the 99 has a great feel to it. I've been reading about the bow riding high and solutions of a bigger trim tab to resolve this. Love the style of the boat but want to make the right d3ecision. At 30', thhe Mainship has a ton of good qualities
