Hi all -
Been wanting an AI for a while and found what looks to be a good deal on a used one pretty local to me. A few questions if I may -
This would be a 2008 model year AI stock except the addition of turbo fins and sail rudder and apparently roller furling (yay!) . Seller claims all in excellent condition.
Question 1 - Any significant differences between 2008 model year and 2012? Specifically any component or design in the older one I am stuck with? Anything I can/should upgrade to from the 2012 parts catalog...
Question 2 - Anything I should look for when I survey the boat? H16s are my expertise so I know to look for standing rigging, soft spots in hulls, etc. on those but no idea where the weak spots are in the AI and what to watch out for.
Any and all input welcomed and thanks in advance,
