Re: I think I have found what I want

Well I bought a 76 3 years ago for $10,000 with a trailer. It was in good shape the trailer newer and I live where not many sailboat available. This one looks in better shape than mine was. So baring any major problems ,rotten decks or bulkheads ect.,not to bad a price. I like the winch on the cabin top and if you buy it I want pics of Bimini.

The cockpits are small but this is because the cabins are made bigger. Makes it nice for over night or longer stays. Sails better with a genoa then a #3jib. I have an outboard. With out the lazerette storage I would be at a loss.

Things to look at. Leaky chain plates and the rotten bulkheads that go with them. Wire to rope halyards (personal preferences). Bow roller. I don't have one and can't find away to put one on without major rework. All I can think of other then the stuff any sailboat needs to be looked at.
