Can anyone help a New Boat Owner ona custom Ketch?
Get a copy of "Wooden Boat" magazine, at the end of the classifieds there is a section labled "Boats For Free". I am sure you will find a better deal if you watch a few issues. I am sure you will have much more money in the boat you are looking at than it will ever be worth. I don''t like to be negative but I also wouldn''t want to see you lose your dream of sailing because of a "money pit" boat.
Just my opinion - Good luck and Fair Winds.
