Re: Newbie looking at buying a sailboat with questions.

I live in Seattle and have the same size boat, most of the above is on the mark. If the hull is in good shape it can be a dyi job. Seaview, and other boat yards, have off season deals now that can save you some $.

Marine (salt water) growth in our area is very vigorous. The issue is not just slime but barnacles and muscles. Proper anti-fouling bottom paint is a must have for any boat in the water.
