1974 Fuji Ketch

I'm going to look at one this weekend and wondered if anyone has any experience with the Fuji 35. Pointers on what to what for that may be common to this builder. Etc. Any owners out there?

I'm trying to stay in the Gulf Cost of Florida and Alabama but I have extended to East Coast of Florida to see some I was particularly interested in. I'm trying to keep the travel down for the 'first look' visits.

I have quite a bit of experience advising folks rebuilding a couple of these turkeys. I must admit that the brochure describes a very different boat than those that I was involved with. Frankly, these boats are notoriously poorly constructed so I would look to see:
-If the iron fastened teak into plywood over wood framing deck and cabin structures have been properly replaced using marine materials,
-whether the brass deck hardware has been replaced with bronze, aluminum or stainless steel hardware.
-Whether the plumbing, electrical and propane systems have been replaced with something vaguely resembling ABYC compliant installations.
-Whether the wooden spars have been replaced or reglued with proper adhesives.
-Whether the black iron tanks have been replaced.
-Whether someone has done a proper blister job using epoxy resin and cloth.

There's nothing you can do about the poor sailing capabilities of this design.

Ishmael,
Would this ship just happen to be named Pequod? If so, be very wary of a certain one-legged Captain's fateful quest.

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.

Hey, Thanks for the input and words of advice/caution. I will let you all know the status after I see her. I know that they have somewhat of a reputation for poor deck fasteners (stanchions, cleats, etc.) and leakage thru to the deck core. Other than that I have not much info other that the websites already provided.

thanks all
