Re: Any advice on this boat?
Nice boat. Spruce mast is probably a solid piece ( which is good) and may be original so there is a small chance it's o.k. If it's a box type it's probably shot. Sounds like a good engine. I think your goal is to get the boat habitable . Restoring a teak deck is a good father son project. Good year for a boat. I'd say get it and fix it up. Definetly a project but a worthy one. I've alway's liked Cheoy Lee's.
