A 1980 CS36 Traditional. All the electronics are old - backstay mount radar, old RV style 1000w inverter, battery monitor not working right, three old (two antique) depth sounders, ancient VHF, one autohelm not working. Letrasan MSD not working and no holding tank. Original knotmeter and log not working. 8 through hull valves replaced with industrial plastic ones (yikes). Backstay original and needing replacement. Rat's nest plumbing in galley and head, leaking Y valve in head, solar panel wiring corroded, one panel has a corroded spot internally, muffler shot. salt water pumps not working in galley or head. Wiring "suspicious". Need to rebed chainplates, no tender, running rigging a bit tired.
On the plus side, bottom and rudder has recently been epoxied, new propane salon heater, recent oversize standing rigging, windlass with spare motor, B&G below deck autopilot, decent sails 4 or 5 years old, maxprop, new refrigeration system, engine driven salon heater, recent full canvas cockpit enclosure, new cockpit cushions, 3 solar panels, hydraulic backstay adjuster, lots of new spare parts, new dripless shaft seal, tranny recently rebuilt. 3000 hours on engine, which runs and starts very well. (Vendor has spare rebuilt but I said no thanks -who packs around a spare engine? Where would I keep it?). Deck and hull sounded out okay. New salon sole. 4 new 6 volt very good quality golf cart batteries.
We still haven't had the mechanic go over the engine yet. Vendor is asking $90,000 on west coast (BC)
