Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions

I stole my 42 yr old Westerly Centaur and I LOVE every inch of her. Her bilge keels, spacious interior (for a 26 ft) , sails great in heavy wind, both girls have their own bunk, and is built like a brick @#$* house! We are using the hell out of it and are adding solar and refrigeration and headed south next winter!
Biggest key is go as small as you can be comfortable, and go NoW.
