I managed to pick up one of these lil' beauty's too. Mine's been sitting on the hard for a few years, needs lots of cleaning and refurb, but so far so good seems solid as a tank. These are such nice boats in a lot of ways. Not all that big, but a lot "bigger" (inside) than most boats this size.

Thanks! I'm a long way from being in the water yet, and even longer (and a lot more cash) from being in the kind of shape your boat is in. But I'll get there eventually (foolishly I plotted out the expense sheet for total cost projections - ouch).
