Is this the Mirage 27 you rejected earlier?

Rejected Mirage

Looks like it has good bones but needs keel work and likely a new diesel. Yes, I have looked at it thanks. Good boat for the right owner.

We found our boat

Two weeks ago we purchased a 1987 Mirage 25 in "above average" condition according to the surveyor. Very nice and easy for two relative beginners to sail. Have it moored in Fisherman's Cove in West Vancouver, great place to sail out of.

Good for you, and you must be extremely excited!! Here, here on the "post some pics" response. It's the least you could do.

Congrats and enjoy the heck out of her!
