I guess where i'm going is, If the boat were at a dock, in the water, it would be one thing to seatrial it. On a trailer, not close to water, 4k, I almost feel awkward asking. Now, same scenario, but 20k, maybe a different story.
I've been scouring craigslist and sailboatlistings.com, found some nice boats, but w/o trailer. I am, however, dumbfounded by the lack of pictures in peoples ads.
Another question; Is anti-fouling paint necessary on a trailer sailer in fresh water?
I do appreciate the feedback, good and bad. The exterior is a little rough, the interior was great. The cracks are where my ignorance lies. Is this a structural thing, does this require major repair? I'd be more comfortable if the motor was seized or the wiring was hacked, thats easy(for me). I stuck my head in every space it would fit with a flashlight, everything looked dry and clean. No rust stains whatsoever on or around any stainless. The only soft spot was where you feet land when entering the cabin, and that looked more like a plastic cover than fiberglass. The (approx 1 1/2 square) had a little bounce when I enterered.
