As the header says...
Found an ad for the above at , what seems to be a cheap price.Now to find out what's wrong!
AT 30 feet, it's a tad longer that I wanted; but since it has a lot of the stern taken by a rather long lazerette locker, the rearmost bu=it of the cockpit is prolly around 27' from the bow; so...
Not as beam-y as I wanted either; but it most certainly appeals to my "old school" appearance dictates.
The inboard is AWOL and it has a running 25 hp Evinrude hanging off the back.
Looks like the roller furler halyard has come loose and the jib is piled up on the deck. Hopefull that it can be snagged and no mast adventure will be needed!?!?
Owners bailed, left it with the local live-aboard and beat feet back to central US. Apparently, the new title holder only wants to get what he can and avoid future slip fees; which will start up at the end of the month.
I can get this beauty for a song...perhaps off key a bit; but....
Other than the obvious age-related cosmetics; is there anything specific to look for? The Hinterholler yards have the rep to have built some exemplary yachts. I can probably buy this one for the scrap value of the lead keel and the price of the used sails, not considering the roller set up!
Are the C&Cs of the period as good as I'm led to believe? Is it worth my time to even consider taking it on? A little polish, some teak oil and Voila!
Guess I'll know once I see it?!?
Will report after viewing.
