Leave the guy alone. So what he bought a 10K boat without a survey...

Enjoy her.

What is the damage to the bulkheads anyway? Is it from water intrusion? Check your decks and make sure they don't seem soft or spongy. I'm not sure if the Ericson/Alberg has a cored deck or not but if the decks are in good shape and the rest of the mechanicals checked out then you got a pretty sweet deal on that thing.

Beautiful boat.

Yeah it had a leaky water hose, and they old owners didn't realise it, and it messed up the bulkhead. The Decks are stiff nothing soft in them. When I get the pics of the bulkhead I will Post them. The motor was re-built in 2006, and has 180 hours on it. The wind generator needs new brushes. The Electrical was rebuilt in 2006, with all new wireing, and a new panel. New Hotwater Heater in 2006 too. And you bet Im going to enjoy her all the way down to the Rio Dulce

Sounds like your comfortable with the calculated risk you've taken. Alberg designs are very pretty boats, and if the damage is as limited as you believe , you shoudl be in good shape. Enjoy her.

Your insurance company will probably insist on a survey.

Cool. Sounds like you've made a pretty good purchase. Boat looks to be well taken care of in the pics... Does she have good rags? Tell Jeff H. You didn't ask his opininon if it was a wet boat or not

LOL JEFF H Hates Alberg's I wouldn't ask him. He was already saying the 35 Alberg is a submarine with a mast. Her Sails are all redone. She is in pretty good shape, I will fix what is left to be done, and have a sweet live-aboard Boat. She will take me, and the wife to Belize so the way I look at it I did good. I just bought her a generator 3000 watt Honda today For my back up power. I need to put new brushes in her wind Generator, and Im going to buy 2 Solar panels for her also, And im looking to get a SSB radio, and a Dingy. Im Just going to let the Yard do the Work, and fix the Bulk Heads. With my Parrot, Westie, and wife on board it would be to hard for me to do that big of a job on her so I will let them do it.

Yeah I just paid the boat off. The Repairs, where not as bad as first thought, they will run about $1500.00 from the yard, or way less if I do it myself. I got an awesome deal on this boat. If you guys are looking to buy a sailboat you should check Spectrum Yachts in Savannah, GA. Ask For Jim Bulluck he is a real nice guy, and Way better than any Broker I have ever met before Spectrum Yachts

Hmmm. After looking at the photos, I'm not so sure you did poorly.
Since your insurance company, and likely any boat movers, are going to want a survey anyway, you might as well swing for that.
But presuming everything checks out, you should be one happy clam.
Congratulations on a really pretty boat!

Dear Mike,

Looked at the photos and ya done good! She wouldn't have lasted this long if she wasn't a well found ship. Your "survey" for insurance will probably never get her out of the slings and give you a chance to check the cutlass bearing and thru hulls. They really don't make 'em like they used to.
