Thats a fantastic bargain. All boats are expensive to maintain. At least that one is almost free to buy.
A friend brought a Helms 25 all the way down from the Rochester area to launch it near the cottage I had at the time on LIS. I had a Cal 25 there in a slip. He launched it and rigged it up for the great race.
Too bad for him that there was just about no air and I had a 165 genny on the Cal and we caught some whisper of air and sailed off.
Thinking back on the thousands of $$$$ that I paid for the Cal that Helms is a gift. No yard storage either!
