Looks like a sweet deal, John.

I'm not sure which model--but one of these Benes in about this size has a problem with the stock rudde rbeing longer than the shoal draft keel, so rudder damage happens before the keel grounds. Check carefully for hairline cracks & the rudder post, if this is one of those models. You wouldn't believe what a rudder + tube can cost.
