Chinese Junk after visit

Just got back to NYC from Providence. Spoke to the owner of the boat, missed the broker, (damn Traffic! lol).

Seems he is the one who shipped the boat over in ''84. Built it up himself with Teak that came with the boat. It was run as a charter for a while, However, it has become a problem for him to sail and keep up now. He is 74 and wants to simplify his life more. Doesn''t have a lot of friends to help with the boat, Hence the sails not being used much.

The inside is very roomy and Larger than my wife and I expected. It has all of the electronics needed to sail as a charter, and has some nice conveniences installed, Fridge, Freezer. Also, a 2 tank propane stove.

Owner says the Temperature inside is around 72 in the winter in Rhode Island.

As for maintenance, claims he pulls the boat out of the water every year and works on the bottom. 3-4 days to sand, caulk, and re-varnish. Total $1,200. As he will be pulling the boat out in Mid August, I will go up to see the boat again at that point. Depending on the research undertaken in the next 2-3 weeks, I might be looking for a surveyor.

As for the boat, if no one wants to buy the boat, He claims that he will donate it to the National Historic Foundation.

Please let me know what you think, I will post pics as they become available.

Thanks in advance,
