In the Process of Purchasing Catalina 22

Hey this will be my first sailboat and it looks like its in good condition. Its a 1977 Catalina 22 with a somewhat older outboard 4hp motor. The gas is premix, for some reason the throttle control doesn't work so you must manually adjust throttle. Interior lights don't work, some light leaking, but overall sails are in good shape, also has extra sails, well taken care of.. So just looking for some advice from the experts.. Do you guys think $2,000 is a reasonable price? I don't have any pics yet but it has a 150 genoa jib, no trailer, no outside cushions, fairly new battery, not to much electrical stuff, which I will eventually add. Has a radio inside and a small portable head. This seems good for me since I am a beginner and the owner is super nice and has taken me out several times. I also would like to know how to use the power at the marina.. This boat doesn't have a plug so I guess I must buy the cord with the washer like plug for the marina and then somehow connect that to the battery or something.. Any help please...Also I've called about insurance and my first quote was $367 for the year.. That was for all year since I'm in Cali and it includes the required 500K liability for the marina. Finally, the marina where the boat is currently at charges about $294 a month including electric and water, is that good? I know I asked a lot of questions but this is my first time and any help from you guys would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot for your advice and time.! Can't wait to sail

If you haven't committed to the boat, I'd recommend you read the Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started, as it will help you determine whether this boat is worth looking off further.

What shape is the deck in? How is the rigging? What is leaking? Is this a wing keel, fin keel or swing keel??

Personally, I think the price is high based on your description of the condition of the boat. The engine doesn't work properly, the electrical system is shot, the cabin or deck leaks...etc.

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.

I think $2K is good price if the boat is ready to sail as-is. If it is a swing keel, check if keel bushing and cable has been replaced (there are kits). If there are not upgraded scuppers (in the transom), that would be a few hundred $ upgrade. Need roller furling for singlehanding? Any extra equipment included that you might need (lifejackets, dinghy, whisker pole...). I found myself spending a lot of money in my first year with my C22 on personal equipment.

Consider resale value of a C22 without a trailer.

Others can comment about shore-power. I just have a very small (Harborfreight) solar panel that keeps my single battery topped off for weekend sailing.

The insurance sounds high - what was the deductible?
I was quoted $144 (State Farm, where we have house and vehicles) for a '78 C-22 swing keel, 3hp motor and trailer, with $500 deductible.
