I found one other exactly like it but they don't have any other info either. What would be a good price? Anyone? Needs paint, floorboard, wiring I'm sure, and sails.

Normally, you would have to pay extra to have the sails shredded. It looks like they took really good care of it by trying to back it into a covered slip even though it had a mast.

C,

Before I signed anything, I'd take measurements and try to find a used sail to fit. What ever it's worth, take that off the boat. For reference, I bought my Lancer 25 for $2200. Roller furler, 150% genoa, two kickers and an inflatable. We sailed the first year doing nothing to her. Since then it's been the usual for an well loved boat. A little upholstery, a shroud or two, a fresh coat of paint. That sort of thing.

Don

Yeah I know right. LOL. They did actually remove the back stay so the mast is ok. As for the sails, shredded is an understatement.

So what do you guys think about 200 bucks? Would I be going wrong?

She has to be a trailer sailer preferably with a small galley. I've taken the advice of many on this board to include my wife in the decision making and what makes her feel comfortable....especially since I don't want to sail alone. I look forward to getting to know everyone.
Traliering your boat adds alot of things to look at, where locally can you launch, do you have the vehicle to tow, can that same vehicle pull it out of the water, liablity on the highway, registation of trailer, ins in some states is high, with fixed kell you need deep launch ramp, and extended boom is needed as part of trailer for launch purposes. And you will find that quick simple off and on is not the case. some boats require a fork lift to steady mast to set same. and then what to do with storing empty tailer....I just found it out with my seafarer 23, put it in a slip, enjoy the time you have on the water. Look at it with all needs and sail the boat, not haul
