I've done something wrong in life if I couldn't figure a way to make a deal like that work . . . at least for a few years anyway. But as Cam pointed out, an '83 Taiwan boat - refit or not, will require a sizable maintenance/operating budget in the cruising kitty.
If this is obtainable, most here I'm sure, are envious you're able to do this with a still young family. Wishing you good luck in your endeavor.
