Just my opinion, offered at no cost, and FWIW.

The boat was bought out from under me. It was a blessing in disguise. Dave saw it and said the engine looked scary!

I can only speak from my own experiences. Hardly ever pays to be in a hurry, there will always be another boat, possibly (probably) better than the last one.

Re: Replacing the Auxiliary

My wife calls it "giving it the acid test" - wait a day or two and if you still want it and it's still there, it was meant to be.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Or touch it and if it burns the next day, don't buy it.

What do you think I've been doing for the past 32 years.

She may not always be right but she IS SWMBO.

She's the one who turned me on the the joys of getting a bargain. Before that I would just buy what I needed/wanted without much thought to the price. Now I always go for consignment shops and Craigslist and only hit the retail outfits when all else fails.

The problem with keel re-sets is you NEVER know what condition the bolts are in until it is dropped. With "proper" keel bolt replacements running $500.00 each per bolt, plus the shipping of the keel to and fro Mars Keel or H. Broomfield & Son's these repairs can really add up. Replacing keel bolts any other way then smelting is simply a false economy.

My buddy Mike recently did an older Sabre 36 that required 5 bolts be replaced. The cost of just fixing the keel was about $4000.00 when you included shipping. Total cost was upwards of 8K if I am not mistaken...

Often much easier to find a boat not in need of such repairs...
