man i'm glad i found this forum! i've been looking at tahitis for the last month or so and i'm about to pull the trigger on one. its a 1972 tahiti with an Olds 455 and berkeley jet. as this will be my first boat (i've been in, and driven, lots but never owned one) i'm not sure about ALL that i should be looking for prior to purchase. i've read a few of the threads here and one thing i'd like to get a handle on is the 1/4 stringer vs. full stringer. how do i tell the difference. any, and all, info is appreciated. thanks.
