What kind of boat is this?



The guy says it's a 1981, 28 feet. Has a port-a-potty, sleeps 4.


Guy not answering his phone, so I was curious if anyone knows what kind of boat this is to see if it's even worth tracking him down later tonight

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

There's a photo in the post I made, but here is the link to the advertisement in case it's not showing up for people:

1981 sailboat 28'

Thanks for any help

At that price I have a feeling it has some major problems.

Well, I'm working on a tight budget, so I'm just looking for something "sailable" that isn't dangerous.

It's fun to look -

If the current owner is saying the bulkhead needs work, it may NOT be safe to sail, as is.

If you have a long-term perspective, you may learn a lot about fixing boats the first year, and more about sailing the second.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
The boat is at the main Leschi dock north of I90 based on the pics. A number of decrepit boat in that marina. Altho some very nice ones too. But for some reason a higher than normal decrepit number than most marina's. Should be visible from shore.

The buc not sure about where or what. But a fellow from Tacoma with one visited Edmonds last summer, he has had his to Desolation more than once. His comment, will not cross and ocean, but for around here, great boat.
