Good luck finding the many parts that it will need.

... Please let me know what you think.
Based on what I read, I would guess that the boat needs a lot of work. The teak deck, and spruce spar are more than likely a mess.
I would look at the boat, and be prepared to spend another $10-15K put into it if the deck and spar are in good shape.
If the spars, deck, and the other stuff that the current owner is not telling you about are in bad shape, you would probably need to spend over $25K, and a lot of time getting her back into habitable shape.
IMHO a 28' boat is kind of small for two people to live aboard. I might be able to do it for a while with my wife or GF (not both)
, but definitely not with my father. Of course, YMMV.
