Some answers I posed to the owner:
> What condition is the auxillary engine in (when was it last run)? I see it was new in '94, but what have been your issues with it since (if any).

It hasn't run in almost 5 years, since going into storage. I've never had any issues with it

> The electronics - can you give a catalog of what is on the boat and functioning/non-functioning

See the survey. Everything was working when it went into storage

> What is the mast height/bridge clearance (I life in FTL, west of I-95)

I don't remember - maybe 44 ft??? The paperwork with that (measured by a rigger after new mast up) is on the boat

> The teak removal/resurfacing...who was the contractor or marine yard that did that work? Or was it a DIY?

I did it myself. More work than I ever want to do again. It looked great when I left, but needs a new paint job now. There were boards wearing thin that were buckling. I was going to screw them back down, but everyone told me I'd make leaks if I did it that way. I loved the teak, but the interior temp dropped substantially, so a white deck is much more appropriate in FL

The teak decks were, in fact, removed!

> When you say the Mizzen mast is in good condition...can you elaborate?

Sail is in good shape, mast was new in late 2001

> Any blistering?

Survey said 6, but he only marked 5. I took pictures of the spots

> Any upgrades to wiring and other electrical appliances

Prior owner, see survey
