The boat is being sold as is...and that can be a huge problem, especially since the sale is not subject to sea trial or survey. YMMV. If the boat has any serious physical defects, the cost of repairing it may very well be more than the boat is worth.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

kind of reminds me of the thread i read about the couple w/ no sailing experience buying a boat at night..then spending 2 years on the boat..then learning to sail..
let's see..engine hasn't been run in 14 yrs...hmm..i bet she'll start right up...(yeaaah..riiiight).
hey..it could be a steal..or it could be nightmare on elm st part 18.
(only boat i ever saw on e-bay that caught my attention..a palmer johnson 44..she lived in wisconsin..i don't...lol)

Not disputing your point, but I have yet to see anything sold "as was". If I didn't already have one, I'd be all over that monkey, transport costs be damned. No balsa cores. It's in great shape. Whoever gets it will get a bargain.

It has no mast, and the whole engine thing is scary. Seabreeze why is this boat in such great shape? Why are Bristols so great? Sell me.

the old man taught me that I should never bet more than I can afford to lose.

My old man told me that I should never bet unless I can fix the end results.

I would be hesitant to buy a boat without it being conditional on a survey and sea trial.
