Sounds like you don't know much about the boat and perhaps not too much about sailing in general. 6 yrs since last survey, lots of money to move it, more money to finish the restoration, more money and time to keep it up. Unless you know what you are getting into (like Charlie Cobra) don't get this boat.

First guy I sailed with told me about wooden boats - "It's like having a family member with cancer. Not a question of if, but when."
