re: 1974 pearson 30

Greetings! YOUR Hildy is up for sale in Lake Lanier and I am considering purchasing her. I see where you installed a two cylinder Universal diesel (year?). Do you know if the gate valves were replaced with marine grade seacocks? Any issues with the keel (grounding) or bottom (blisters, etc.)? Any problem with leaks around/under the attached fittings topside? When was the last time she was out of the water and the bottom cleaned/painted? Sorry for all of the questions. As you can probably tell I am a sailing novice. I haven't sailed in 20 years but want to spend weekends cruisng and sleeping aboard now that I am reaching retirement.

You were very fortunate to spend 35 years with Hildy. It must have been difficult to let her go.

Thank you so much for sharing.


Frank
