    I am going in to look at a 58 50ft connie and was wondering about any chronic trouble spots they had, especially in the hull. It needs work (obviously) but if any connie owners out there could help me out i would much appreciate it. thanks

    I can think of many different issues with that class of yacht. Have it surveyed by some one familiar with the type.
