My main reason for looking at the boat is I want a cruiser that can go anywhere. Contests seem to be up to the task.
I don't have to have wheel steering a vane would be just as good as a wheel long distance. I was mostly thinking about auto pilot and ease of cruising.
The bottom and decks need to be repainted but that's something that has to be done anyway. It also allows me to change the color to what I want.
I have to think that blisters this far down the road have been attended to. But if not I will just grin and bear the problem with a grinder in one hand and a fiberglass repair kit in the other.
the engine is a problem but I can always add a outboard and use that to move her into and out of port.

Thanks Guys I will let you know what the interior looks like i am supposed to see it Sunday. That to me is the real deal breaker here. If I have to replace it all then I will pass on the boat.
