Any thoughts on a 1970 "Seasmoke" 40' Sloop?
I'm getting ready to come home from the middle east soon and looking for a new home on the east coast. Before I came over here, I lived aboard a Hunter 31 in Bremerton, WA so I know I enjoy living aboard and love sailing so I decided I'm doing it again. So my plan as of today, is to sell my boat in WA and buy one a little larger and live aboard her. I'm searching for inexpensive vessels and I found one that I could easily afford, and she is in need of work, so I'm thinking if I'm lucky, I can do some customization in the process of refitting her. The one I'm interested in is a 1970 40' Seasmoke. I haven't seen any of these before, so I'm wondering if anyone has any general observations or knowledge about strengths and weaknesses inherent in the design.
