lesser of 2 weevels???
Ok, enough of the funny quotes from movies.
I am looking at 2 identical model boats, both were made by a company in Nova Scotia and later bought out by AMF.
I would like some opinions from the general populous.
Boat A: 1980 Py26 that has spent a good portion of it's life racing around the buoys.
The plus of the boat is the sail arsenal, I believe there are 8 sails and all are said to be in good condition. rebuilt diesel.
The bad is what I stated previously: raced for a major portion of it's 30 year life.
Boat B: 1979 Py26 roller furler with a decent main and head sail along with a spinnaker. no paperwork, original diesel.
This boat is unmolested, the only hole drilled in the boat holds a bulkhead mount compass.
not even a radio...
I am a little concerned about Boat A due to the stresses placed on the boat over the course (no pun intended) of its life.
It has a newer diesel and all the goodies and would cost us approximately an additional 1500 to purchase.
Is it worth the extra dough?
