sounds good to me

We have a '79 O'Day 25 (Another Snafu). Had her in the Puget Sound for a couple years, Columbia a few more, now here on Tahoe. Very comfortable boat to sail and hang out on. Most we've stayed on her was about 10 days but that was only limited by our time, not comfort. Not the fastest boat on the water but safe and comfortable. I think $2.5K is a good price. Did you get a trailer in the deal? Already in the water with the mast up? Stepping the mast is always fun. There are a couple tricks to make it easier.
