This boat has been on the hard for, well this is the third season. When the owners hauled out the last time, they winterized and just put things away like any other year. Some health? issues have made them not return and the marina is selling as abandoned. Other than dirty it's a real nice complete sailboat and looking forward to doing what's necessary to own our first sailboat. There is a lot of info. out there on the internet, the library, forums and everytime I go to the marina I meet new folks who seem interested in helping? Some things you wonder about and it seems nice to write forums and get good practical advice and answers.

Cheers,
