Buy this book if you plan on buying a used sailboat
on July 7, 2010
This book is an invaluable resource for anyone planning on buying their first sailboat. It is also a very good resource for those who already have sailboats, but want to know more about what to look for that can go wrong. Before paying someone to inspect and survey a prospective purchase, which can cost considerable money, both to buy and to have surveyed, read this book cover to cover. Then go shopping for your dream used sailboat. Armed with the stuff in this book, you can likely eliminated a lot of boats that a survey would discard. Then when you find 'that' boat, you know, "the one" for you, you will only have to shell out for one survey. At a minimum of $300 per survey, this could save you a lot of coin. Buy this book.
