Who knows how old those were?! This guy couldn't figure anything out because he knows nothing about the boat.
Or you do the the survey he incapable of. To heck with how they sail, research will tell you that. Thru halls, Stuffing box tubing, stuff that will make it sink, then go from there. Reduce price accordingly. If he doesn't have the education , educate him, but only on the bad.
