My new boat! (Lido 14)

I just bought my first boat! I've been looking for a couple weeks and found an old Lido 14 for sale. The boat had been sitting in the lady's front yard for almost 7 years untouched. The tires were flat on the trailer and the inside of the boat was growing dirt....(It literally had dirt from all the decomposing leaves and moss in it) She was unsure of the year but thought it to be a 50's boat. (The sail number is 53, but I can't find the boat number) All the rope will need to be replaced, there is no tiller, and the rudder and possibly centerboard will need work.

She wanted 500 for it but after some negotiations I talked her into letting it go for 150. (She didn't have a ton of negotiating power seeing that I had half of a days work just to get it off her property) Here is a couple pics!

She still needs a ton of work but I'm excited to get her up into sailing shape!

Here is an album of more pictures:
