Hi Sailnet,

I had a quick look at this boat a few days ago:

Carmanah Yacht Sales (Victoria, BC)

I am interested to hear what you have to say about this boat, especially in regards to how much it should be worth, and things I will likely need to spend money on in the near future.

The boat seems to be in quite good shape, but I have not poked around too much yet. I'm planning on visiting her again soon and spending time looking at everything I can see.

Some considerations:
-sails are from 2002 or older
-a quick patch was done on one of the port lights that was leaking. after purchase I would have to remove and re-bed all of the port lights properly, but according to the broker the leaking one was patched quickly and no water is entering the cabin
-she has a solid hull and plywood cored decks
-she used to have teak decks but they have been removed

Obviously I will get a proper survey done, but before that I need to know how much to offer. Any thoughts?

If you are not familiar with my rough purchase criteria, experience, etc you can get caught up here.
