If it wasn't sold by tomorrow it was going to be dumped in a field to be used as part of a paintball course. I found that unacceptable so I drove 6 hours one way to pick it up sight unseen for $200 and then drove 6 hours back with it. Thank god I had one working brake light (left one) and one working tail light (right one) and all four wheel bearings were in excellent shape and looked repacked.
Long story short it was a several times over abandoned boat and the guy wanted it gone. I think I have everything except the uppermost slat board for the door and both sails and the little bits that go in the mast track are gone, (bottom stop thing is still there).
I have a good mast and boom it looks like, the stainless bow railing and lifeline railings or whatever around the sides are OK, the standing rigging is all stainless wire it looks like so I assume its fine. Winch handle somehow stayed in the boat all this time and both winches work (some England brand I forget) All the pulleys and bits of hardware look useable. Some of it might be aftermarket and not original. Good rudder that I think may be fiberglass (painted and hull coated) with a laminate wood handle. Original (I think) tandem axle trailer, tires are shot but servicable, everything on it needs work.
Bad news is the boat has been sitting probably with the hatch boards off for probably close to 5 years and the hull is seriously suffering from neglect, Someone drilled about a 3 inch hole into the floor in the interior right as you step down from outside obviously to make it easier to pump out the lower hull. There is currently 6 inches at least of muddy water sitting on top of the keel in the lowest hull area and I can see by a foot long crack with rust leaking out down the side of the keel that it has probably gone through freeze thaw cycles and started to delaminate. It doesn't look too far gone yet though, The whole stupid interior seems to be one piece of plastic so I'll just hack a hole in the floor and put a big ski locker door in afterwards.
Also the whole interior is basically throw away at this point, and though most of the deck is solid the fore deck area is spongy, it appears to be really thin looking at it from the inside so i'm not sure what is normal for that area.
Pics later, I was more concerned with rushing home to minimize driving in the dark with messed up trailer lights and I don't have a day off for a few days. Also how do I even post/host/whatever pics on here?
O and BTW I am NEVER the one that gets the stuff cheap like this so I feel special today.
EDIT: I almost forgot, this is my first sailboat.
