Re: San Juan 7.7

Hi tsheie,

Thanks! I just joined the FB page.

Im in Seattle and I paid $1600 for mine. She's in fairly rough to mediocre shape, I'd say a 4 or 5 out of 10. A good bit of mold, the wiring is a rats nest. Seacocks and through hulls that don't connect to anything...The sails are pretty stiff, but have a couple of worn spots. I've been watching the local market for a while and despite her warts I still feel like I got a good deal. A San Juan 28 was one of my top choices, but I think the 7.7 might be better for me with with my inexperience and budget.

I might look into that keel attachment when I haul her out next week to patch and paint her.
