Question Back on market...

Hi everyone,
As I withdraw from market to increase my capital for the boat I found some boats those may fit my budget...

I'm wondering what you would say?

34' Seafarer(1974): Condition (according to the ad, I haven't seen the boat yet) glazed gel-coating and some cracks in the fairing compound of the rudder... Needs new bottom paint... Looking at around 1-1.5K repairs?(I'm going to offer 9K if it looks good...)

27' Hunter(1978): Older sails (over 10yrs) ... Looking at 1-2K for new pair of sails?(I'm going to offer 7.5K if it looks good...)

30' Pearson(1973): Gas engine... The boat seems to be in OK shape. (Im going to offer 7K if it looks good...)

30' Cat (1976): needs new engine or rebuild... Rebuild the engine for 3-4K?(I'd offer 4K if I like it...)

What do you think of those boats?

PS: I'm after cruising characteristics such as comfort and reliability... I don't mind the speed since I'm not rushing anywhere
