We looked at a Sabre 28 on which the top side stay chain plates on both sides had leaked. The seller (a broker) readily revealed the problem before we even went to look at her. And he revealed it was bad enough and had gone undetected long enough that re-coring was going to be necessary. And boy was he ever right. We did go look at the boat. It was apparent to us that boat, obviously once well-loved and well cared for, had been seriously neglected for quite some time. Our feeling was that the obvious could well be only the tip of the iceberg. We walked away from it.

It's so very sad to see what was once a terrific boat treated that way .
