Re: Mason 43 for under $40,000!

Could be a great deal but the survey will tell you what is left after 4 years of neglect.
Depending on where you are, frost damage may have taken out the engine.
If the engine is damaged, electric is damaged, plumbing was never dealt with, cushions need replacing, sails rat eaten, running rigging gone the asking price may be just about right.

It is real simple.
Start going through the boat system by system and count up what is wrong and put a price on it.
Double that number and it will probably only cost you twice that to put it in good condition.
