Allied Greenwich 24 sailboat for sale

This ad on Texas sailing has some good pics of a Greenwich 24...nice-looking old girl...Looks to me like this boat would make a fine coastal cruiser but there may be structural issues that only former owners or people "in the know" with "on the ground" knowledge of this boat could provide...good luck..if nothing else maybe you know someone who has been sailing a long time who would be able to give her a good look-over if you are not sure what to look for as far as potential problems...good surveyors are usually worth their expense but they can be pricey...and with $ 4000-5,000 dollar boats ( or less) a real yacht survey may be not be cost-effective...I'd check for blisters on the hull that signal a poor fiberglass lay-up..however thick they were in those days there were some boats from this era whose glass jobs have not held up well..(same can be said of the 1980's though)...Also would want to check condition of sails fairly thoroughly and especially condition of standing rigging and the engine as these are your real big dollar items...
