Thanks for all the info. I knew about pricing and that they are hard to sell. I also know they have their die hard followers like most things.
As far as getting parts I am pretty good at getting deals. Not sure how wxpensive things are on CL up your way, but down here in SC they fairly decent here. Found a 9.9 long shaft outboard for $350. (in running condition)
I plan to keep the boat for a season or so I can learn to sail. If I lose $2,000 after learning to sail, I will call that the cost of experience. As far as leaving out interior pieces such as bunks, flats, case work, and shelves, I am not exactly sure what all those pieces are but will google them. I would also run some support pieces and glass those in as well.
Must have for this boat are porta potty, cooking stove, sink, and fresh water storage. I do not plan to sleep on it. May do some fishing and cruising around.
