Boats in this price range can have issues that are as costly as the purchase price (sails, standing rigging, running rigging, core moisture, engines, etc).

Be very sure she is in good shape. Most know enough to pretty up a boat, if you want to sell it.

Good luck.
Thats good advice.
I think it would be foolish to expect to buy something for any less than the one I posted to and expect to be able to liveaboard without issue.

longer term I do want something better but if it serves me as a live-aboard, then my living expenses drop dramatically, I am looking at a full time year round live-aboard. If I am able to do that the savings in living expenses will soon rack up and allow be to buy something newer, bigger, better in 12-18 months time.
