Can a Bear jump into this with an Not off subject but different boat?
Again in fla. Got an add of the internet that jumped in to my brain. A 1981 Seidelmann S37. $11,900. "The biggest Seidelmann ever made." I can't find any spec's on this boat on line
.". Positives: NEW 2010 YANMAR 3GMD (3 cyl, 23 hp) engine (oil just changed)/NEW Transmission/NEW Alternator, bottom paint
job was done in September 2010 (still looking good). Deck is firm. All fiberglass is good. New mast (54 ft) was put in November 2011, from Oday 37. Now, the negatives: Shrouds need to be adjusted. Minor repair
, low cost. Repacking of the stuffing box is required. A female nut on the shaft needs to be replaced. All windows leak and need attention. Ceiling needs some repair
/possible replacement. If serious, boat should probably be taken out of water and in a month it could be 'ship ready'." Quotes from add. Sounds too good for the price. My thinking $25K repairs
, maybe. Haven't done anything....yet. Generally if it sounds too good, run don't walk to the nearest exist...but even blind bears run into honey trees. Retired now, a fair hand at reasonable boat repairs
, firm believer in when in doubt call in the experts...So I'm asking before I jumb overboard.
