Wow you folks are great, and have given me further insight into the future purchase. I uderstand I'll be getting an older boat and you're right it's probably wiser to find one that someone has already done many of the replacements whether it's motors,tanks,decks etc. Solid glass has real attributes in my opinion. Teak decks I can do without for many reasons. I guess we could further the discussion by asking what I should avoid in a new boat not necessarily a brand of boat but more like "avoid cast iron tanks at all cost" or "never buy a boat with plastic portholes they will all need to be replaced".... Every boat owner knows what shoulda been done differently or what could have been done better on their boat so I guess I'm asking is whats that one thing you now know you should rally avoid ? Thanks Steve
