Re: anyone selling a 30+ft sailboat?

In addition to mentioning the seal, the CL ad refers to it as a "project boat." One thing's for sure: If the seller calls it a "project boat," it needs a LOT of work before it can be seaworthy.

I think that any project boat is a horrible idea for a first time boat buyer. He could spend a couple years working on the boat without any actual sailing. That's a horrible way to start sailing.
