The great thing about our Seawind is that it is one of the most seaworthy boats in our marina. Be realistic about how much work you can do yourself and your budget for professional services. I would encourage you to buy the best boat that you can afford (in order to spend more time sailing). You're welcome to come look at my boat as a benchmark.
So yeah this is really helpful. This is what I'm looking at doing right now too although things are looking more and more tenative... I guess without asking you straight up what you bought her for (which would be great to know but I dont expect you to post that) what would you think a fair price for a seawind is in that condition... I know tough question, but just ballpark.
