Arglebargle, congrats and welcome! Is it one of the ones listed on Yachtworld? As long as a thorough survey reveals no flaws.. She is versatile....from singlehanded to a party boat for 8!...well built, solid, good looking (especially for a boat built 20+ years ago!).
We've had Waymar for almost five years (last two on the hard...) My only beef is: a) no hot water on my particular boat (which I will fix) and b) that hand crank for the Yanmar diesel is for show only, I have never been able to get it started, even when the engine was warm. I've tried many times ( to test for back-up options) but I've given up and my questions on the general board about Yanmars on SAILNET is that no one else has managed to start it with the crank either.
Bottle, I've done some of my own house renovation and consider myself handy with most tools. I would not attempt what you have been able to do so well. It turned out great... and I agree, storage is key (whether on land or on the water)
Now based in Barbados.... and wait for it.....the boat is too!
Waymar - Jeanneau, Attalia
