Re: Pearson Renegade

I am the mystery PM-er. Thanks Mongo. Saw the Renegade this morning. Spent about an hour alone on board. Loved the overall picture in terms of size, layout, etc. It would fit the need well. I have made a list of what I would need to do to the boat and will crunch numbers. The admiral thought there was too much work to do but I suppose it is always hard for the ladies to look past what presented as pretty grimey, run-down condition. I looked carefully at the basics - mast step (compression beam solidly in place with no signs of rot or cracking) hull to cabin joint, and chain plates, and deck. All looked good to me. At this point she is not supportive of my making an offer but I shall give her time.
