dsmylie I have a 79 Richards 32 ketch that was bought as a project boat, it was not well taken care of but I liked the lines and layout. There is much work to be done but it is a labor of love. I have been living aboard 2 years now.

I have to agree. I was lucky, my '65 Frisco Flyer had - for most of her life - been well taken care of. This one is a keeper. I fixed every flaw in her rigging, repaired every bit of damage in her deck and cabin, and it was all worth it. She looks stunning at 43.

JR828 I went to look at the Cheoy Lee that I was interested in and found that it was in much worse shape than expected. To bring the boat up to a condition for which I would be happy would have taken much more money and time than I am willing to give at this point in my life. Due to the current economy, I have decided to put the serious boat search on hold unless I find an unbelievable bargain. Still Boatless.

Lion35 It depends a bit on the year of Chey Lee you're looking at, the quality of the boats has varied over the years. What year/make are you looking at?

How do you like your Cheoy Lee?

I am on a serious boat search. I have known about Cheoy Lees but thought that they were relegated to very large yachts! I am very interested in one and was wanting some feedback as to how much you guys like the boat. I am drawn to the classic lines and the interior layouts. Are there any issues known exclusively with Cheoy Lee? Any input would be appreciated! Thank YOU.
