In some ways I think buying second hand is easier.

(1) You are limited to boats that are on the market at the time you want to buy.
(2) You don't have to decide on an exact engine, seating, electronics etc combo someone else has already made those exact mistakes.
(3) You can sea trial the exact rig you are buying not just something similar.

It will be a compromise, but all boats are.

(4) Probably no warranty
(5) At the mercy of scammers
(6) Spend a fortune putting all the problems right that the vendor forgot to mention
(7) Cost of recovery when the wheels fall off the trailer 1/2 a mile down the road from the sellers gaff.

It will be a compromise, but all boats are.
For once I agree with you 100% Poly, quick mark it on the calendar

It turns out iberfoptic was actually just a marketing ghost poster promoting Brig. As a result this thread is now closed.
