seekinginfo is on a distinguished road
I've found out a little more info. It was built in 1973. Current owner had it in great shape until health problems three years ago, including new sails, lines and (sorry I don't know the terminology) the canvass coverings for sails and the wooden steering wheel. It was repainted 5 years ago, and the interior cushions have been recovered. The only problem has been the diesel engine overheating, which the original owner also had. The marina mechanic has worked on it, but this year the owner had a more experienced mechanic work on it and says it appears that the water cooling intake appears to have never been opened. This was within the last week or so, so I'm not sure if it has been taken out to see if that truly fixed the problem. It was purchased from the Chesapeake Bay area in 1996 for $42xxx. We are in the Lake of the Ozarks area in Missouri.
