Re: Passport 41

Hi Ray,
I'll take a stab at it.

The specs did not give out much on age of rigging, condition of sails, By the way it looks to be a sloop and not a cutter rig. If your going off shore you might do better to have a cutter rig. Also has manual windlass most likely you would want to replace that with a good windlass. Like most used boats most of the electronics would need to be replaced. Engine only has 1700 hours so I don't think you would need more than a good engine survey.

I will go out on the line and say if you can bring the price down to 140K and have time to work on it yourself over the next 3 or 4 years you will probably spend another 70K if you want her right for long term passage making. But a good seaworthy boat, to bad it is a sloop though.

Cheers
