We get a lot of questions about how to choose a budget bluewater sailboat. Atticus is a used production fiberglass sailboat that has some great bluewater features (full keel, protected rudder, split sail plan, and a decent sail area to displacement ratio) but we rushed into buying her, and it took us 3 years to get her ready to sail again. Luckily, those three years taught us countless lessons about boat construction, and we wanted to share some tips so that you can avoid making some of the mistakes we did!
