I'm not a "bluewater" guy, but I don't see anything there that looks ancient or unusable. Hell, they introduce so many new electronics all the time, it's hard to keep up anyway. I was reviewing an electronics "wish list" I made up 1 1/2 years ago (waiting for money) and half the stuff I wanted is obsolete already. Just check out their condition and you should be fine. FWIW, I'm about to install a Tank Tender, so I know that's current.

Mike

1985 Not worth much. 20-30K if not needing too much more work. Consider for 120K you can get a late model Catalina 38 MkII, not to mention a myriad of other vessels.

She is a beauty and well equiped.

I am curious, are you planning to keep her on Lake Lanier or move her to the coast.

I live minutes from the lake, but keep my boat at Hilton Head Island.

Good luck!

Can anyone with more of a blue water background inform me as to how update the on board electronics are?
the electronics, are nice, but being more than 2 years old, are all but obsolete in today's world....that being said they may be just fine for coastal cruising. Great as backup units, too.

But as far as adding "value" to the price of the boat..not likely.

YMMV

Thanks,
I am planning on keeping her on Lanier for a year or two, then moving her to the coast. Hilton Head, Savannah, Charleston, St Mary's?

That may be true, but you cannot really compare the two. They do not, can not, afford to make boats like this anymore. The hulls were way overbuilt and the interior teak woodwork is superb.

Nothing yet, just doing my due diligence. I found out that these boats were manufactured with stainless welded tanks and there is a history of the tanks failing and requiring replacement. It's pretty expensive and involved to replace them

Any metal tank that is 26 years old is suspect.
