Opinions on Helms 25
I have an opportunity to buy a Helms 25 with trailer for $900 (or less). I'm basically looking for something that I can fix up over the next year and turn into a decent first boat and weekend getaway.
Here's what I know about the Helms 25 from the owner:
"We have a 25 foot Helms sailboat with extra large cockpit and cabin. It has a drop keel, and double axle trailer. It has a mainsail, jib, genoa, and spinnaker. Some sails need some patching. Interior cushions are ok, but old. Boat is in very serviceable shape, but needs some work. We would like $900 for the boat."
Any opinions on Helms sailboats or this boat in particular?
