If you buy this old gal, hop aboard the Yahoo Sabre email forum. There's alot of knowledge, good people & owner photo albums that have documented upgrades & fixes.
I'll check out the Yahoo site. Thanks!

The woodwork on this doesn't concern me. It's the fiberglass. From what I've read and heard the rotted knees can be cut out and replaced. I can do that. But then it all has to be bedded in with fiberglass. My biggest concern is making sure the bedding is bonded to the existing structure. That, and not dying from the epoxy fumes!
