Damn I can't ever post the link to my main gallery, if you search for drhoward69 that's my page, the boat is the first few pictures


Don't mind all the car pictures or various other retarded pictures I have up on there, lol

Well, from the pics the hull doesn't LOOK bad, but thats a hard one to tell from pics. Looks like everything is there, I don't see the rudder, but I see the tiller so maybe it's hidden. Used sails can be picked up very cheap on ebay, craigslist, etc... The trailer looks pretty bad, and I'm sure you don't have the title so that is probably worthless...

If it was me and I didn't want it, I'd probably take the $200 and save myself the trouble. You could probably get a little more if you cleaned it up and sold it at the right time of year. If you want to try it out and the hull is solid, then buy a sail and give it a try. I'm sure you'll get the money you invested back if all you buy is a sail...


Just my 2cents,
Austin
