    My husband and I have found a Westwind 42 that we would like to purchase and live aboard.
    Obviously we fell in love with the lines first and then the spaciousness next.
    Does anyone know anything about this boat? We know it was made in Taiwan and then sold through Texas. Does anyone know of any glaring problems with it and what type of cord the fiberglass was assembled with? How does it sail. Does it travel windward without too much of a battle?
    Thank you,
    J & N
