You might be able to turn the key...but you can't steer..

I love those Spartan seacocks though. ;-)

WTH did he weld his bow pulpit up..

Wow. You should slap the listing broker for wasting your time.

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

welcome to boat shopping. assume the ads are wrong, don't get your hopes up until you see a boat in person.

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

I bet that bow pulpit was welded that way to allow them to fit into a 38' marina slip to save on moorage fees. It's not uncommon to see creative ways to shorten bow pulpits on boats in my marina because fees are paid on slip length, and they count bow pulpit into the boat length.

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

I think there is a mis-print in the ad. Change turnkey to turkey then the ad is accurate.

You can't see it but it's broken, tubing split in half. When asked about it, the broker said the boat was moved to a slip for the winter before Sandy hit. The bow pulpit was destroyed when it hit the seawall. If you follow the lines of the pulpit on the port side you can see it was deformed, pushed back, during the storm.

I'm guessing the blocks on the port side of the main traveller were blown out when the mast began whipping side-to-side during the storm. The duct tape covering the void was brittle and the wood underneath was rotted. There are some deep gouges on the hull, also from the storm.

I guess it's a learning experience, but I'd still be pissed....

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

I think the structural duct tape is a nice touch. But I don't want to know what those measuring spoons are for.

Man, I'm so glad I'm no longer looking for a boat. That's actually the best reason to buy one.
