Re: Hurican Sandy Aloa 34

IMHO, sailing it down and around is just not an option. You'd need a RELIABLE engine.

Andreas, I don't mean to kill your deal.

Shipping it should not cost more than 7k or so, put another 20k into a new engine and 10k or so into a refit of the rest of the damage and you have a boat worth maybe 25k, with 37k into it, plus sweat blood and tears.

Sometimes boats and money just don't make sense but look at it with open eyes.
