Re: Macwester 30 Wight MK1

That boat is an intriguing boat, but it needs a lot of work. All of the systems are worn, and much maintenance has been deferred. the entry cost is pretty low, but it's due for new sails, new running rigging, and the standing rig should be inspected. The Leyland diesle engine is obsolete, and the condition is unknown. For daysailing and occasional overnighting on the Great lakes, it might be worth the gamble, but for a run south there are better choices, although at a higher initial price point, that provide better value.
