Before I saw the add for this Bombay for sale I was only aware of one other, besides mine, both 31' Clippers, in the area. Assuming the hull on 44' was laid up like mine, it will be solid glass right at an inch thick and will have some small blisters. My boat had a few weeping blisters that I had repaired after stripping the bottom down to gelcoat last November. There are probably another 15-20 small (quarter size) blisters on the hull I did not touch. If the hull is in the condition mine is it would not be much a concern to me. I would be more concerned about the engine, rigging, and centerboard condition.
If you make the trip down to look at it, let me know, I'd love to take a peak at her.
