How did the sails get tears if it was lightly used? A boat that's sat on a cradle for seven years might have many problems. Did the surveyor check all the systems? There are many CS30's on the market. I'd rather look at one that's been sailed and updated for the last seven years. That 4k less might add up fast if you have to fix a lot of stuff once she's launched. The rot in the the cored decks is not an easy fix. Instruments? FW system? Pumps? Running rigging? Is this all 22 years old? As I said earlier there's lots of CS30's on the market. Keep looking.
