Hmm... A 46' boat for $60,000... I am getting the feeling that something else is wrong with it besides electronics... same thing with a 51' boat for $70,000
Granted, the 51' boat is 20 years old....but still. A recent 35' boat that was at least that old sold for $60,000 or so last I checked, and it was in very good shape.
I'd point out that a recent search I did for boats 44-55' LOA and 1987-1997 didn't yield a single boat below $160,000 except for a single gulfstar... which didn't surprise me...
If the boat is in need of new rigging, exactly how do you expect to charter it? It can't be sailed safely without replacing the rigging.
I think you're being foolish by even considering either of these floating wrecks... YMMV.

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.
