Where are you located? Where is the boat?
I have looked at a Gib Sea ketch that was in Nanaimo years ago. The foundation appeared good, but it was going to take a lot of upgrading to get to where I would like it.
Some comments seem to place them below Dufour in build quality. That is not a good thing.
