    Check all paperwork and make sure everything works. Take photos of everything.

    I meet two guys in Croatia this year with a FL44 hardtop, not the open version. Both hat mo major issues. Have the little sister FL 38.
    The latching relay at the heavy duty box in the aft cabin (you activate it with a carlington switch at the DC/AC panel in the galley) its worth to have an eye on.
    They are hard to get on the market...
    Which year, and what engines? Open or hardtop?

    No no no, you just don’t realise you want one.

    Because they ARE the answer to everyone’s boating needs

    Well when we swapped boats ,we did all the obvious the only thing I did not check was satellite tv and yep it failed, what we did while at home was a check list with relevant questions because you always forget something. Ps does that mean you will becoming to the right side of the river.

    As this boat probably comes with Penta D6 and outdrives or IPS thatīs where you need to put the attention. The outdrives break more then they should and the IPS are very expensive to service/repair
    I donīt know for what reason you write that you donīt want shafts but if this model is avalible with shafts my opnion is that it would be stupid to buy one with outdrives or IPS

    Targa 44 was never available with shafts. IPS or outdrive only.

    If your Sat dish worked you could watch Stoke City lose more often which may help lubricate the funbox locks. I'll have a cap passed around the lads and see what we can raise.
    And yes, we have yet to share an anchorage with Hullabaloo. A Targa 44 would fit in well I wouldn't be lonely up front anymore.
