Unless I was cruising in a fog ridden area (Maine), radar wouldn't be high on my list. Not much fog in paradise. Don't get me wrong, radar is nice, just way down the list if on a budget. Sails are at the top of the list as far as add ons go, on top of a good hull, deck, engine and rig. The rest is pretty much gravy, and in the case of the Hunter how used is it. If my engine was solid and reliable I would describe the outboard as for a dinghy even if it wasn't included - not as back up power. Maybe I'm too sceptical. I think I'd get an engine survey - not too many $ and probably a good idea.
