Another caution: the one I saw earlier this year had chainplates attached to under-deck knees (not bulkheads per se) - they had pulled hard enough to lift the deck upwards, and you could actually see the hull pulled in in the same area. This may have been from overtensioned rigging... In addition the entire topsides gelcoat was heavily crazed - not just at edges and turns but everywhere.

Hopefully this was just a really bad or abused example of the venerable classics. (They still wanted over $100K)

None of those issues on mine, knock wood.

CBinRI has convinced me. I think I'll plan a little road trip to have a look at her. There are also 2 J/40's up that way that need a visit too. More on this soon.

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.
