IIRC that boat you are looking at is owned by the dealer, as they took it on trade for a bigger boat that the owner took delivery on in Europe.
Being as they have had it for about 6-9 months. They should be willing to work something out with you to verify how bad the rust is. It could be a quick sand, small amount of epoxy and new paint, and away you go!
Iron keels as you should know from owning your Attalia, seem to have some sort of what I will call a blister, but probably the wrong term yadda yadda......everytime it is hauled, at least my Arcadia has been that way. o one sands these blisters down, apply some epoxy to them, and bottom paint! Unlike the last time, after 20 some yrs, the WHOLE keel needed sanding and reapp of epoxy, so next summer should just be a few blister type issues.
Hope you get her and enjoy her!
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
