I agree with Mitiempo about the boat ID. I doubt it is a 'Lloyd's' - I suspect that this refers to it being built to Lloyd's standards - which is a good thing - and is tied in some fashion to the famous marine insurance house in England.

I would not suggest that this is not a good deal, it may well be. Have you done lots of looking around? There are lots of decent available with prices starting at $0. If you have not checked, have a look and search for boats from 20 to 25' and from $500 to $2000 and see what you like. I saw a Catalina 22 for $1000 and a C&C 24 for $2000. Note that Yachtworld is not the best place to look for real bargains since they are being sold through a broker. Keep looking at eBay and Craigslist and at bulletin boards at sailing clubs for the real deals.

Good luck with it.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
