Whould you buy this just to play with?

Sorry I can't post the link yet as I don't have ten posts yet. But you can look it up buy the item # 270222687911

This is on ebay. It is listed as a Luger Seabreeze 16, But it looks more like a 20' westwind.

I was thinking about it just to mess with as I learn. What do you think?

Thanks
Shane

You buy this boat, and the one lession you will learn in spades, very quickly, is how expensive parts are...and the cheaper the boat...the more expensive it will be to own.

For example, I would assume you could find some ready-to-go sailboats in the 17-19 foot range, siting on operable trailers, that could be boaght for just the cost of a new trailer to drag this puppy away. Let alone if the rest of the gear such as sails are in a condition similar to the trailer. This boat has negative value

Certified...in several regards...

Any chance you can go look at it before you place a bid?

Spades is easier to win than playing hearts - hearts ends in divorce.... spades a shallow grave - how shallow - how you play the game!!

Count yourself lucky and look for a boat you can take sailing this year, you'll have a lot more fun.
