Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

Yeah, those Sun 27 photos are nearly useless. If you were keeping the boat long term then I'd avoid raw water diesel engines, but if you think it'll still be strong at the end of the summer then it's less of a concern. What's the status on bottom paint?

If the Yankee is no longer listed by the end of the day then it probably turned into a bidding war. If it is then it's probably a mess. Either way it doesn't sound like it'll be your boat. They are really fun boats to sail. Heavy, but with a big rig that balances out that weight.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
