Just sent the owner an email confirming I will purchase the boat. Thanks for the info. It is nice to know that I am getting a quality boat that is also comfortable. I have 2 years to work on it. It appears that the entire interior is out. After I get it painted, what should I put back in or leave out? Also should I put in a wind vane auto pilot or a tiller auto pilot? Other amenities that you would recommend for long distance sailing or coastal cruising? I was thinking a desalinator, windmill for charging the batteries, and a power inverter with a solar panel. Once I get out of the military I would like to sail up the CA coast to Alaska and also down to Hawaii.
Sidney777, it should have a rudder.
MarkCK, these boats have a larger following in Europe. It is my understanding that the US has lighter winds than in parts of Europe where these boats are most popular.
