Welcome to Sailnet!
You'll get better responses to your questions if you provide some more information. Spend some time and provide us with some information on the boat you are considering purchasing...
Stuff like model year, engine type, location, equipment, pictures, what you've seen when you've looked at the boat, etc...
I expect that you will be happy with the responses you get after you put in a bit more effort up front.
Help us help you.
