kmartin16 is on a distinguished road
One boat I am looking at fits the bill; solid to my untrained eye (survey coming if offer is accepted), with a newish engine. However, the hull needs fairing, re-bed a couple of things on deck, and TLC inside but nothing major (like I said, survey coming). The broker selling seems honest and politely cautioned me about a couple of other boats I looked at in his stable and his warnings were right on. All systems are functional, but are a little older and probably should be replaced over time. I figure I could do those things at my pace and if I buy the boat cheap enough up front, I won't cry too hard when, not if, I have to spend on something I did not foresee. Hopefully I am being realistic. As I read this site, it seems there might be no such thing -- a realistic sailboat buyer.
