I am looking at a 1985 Seaward 24.4 with a swing keel. She is clean, in good shape, and a fair price. No engine, she has a bracket for an outboard. She seems to be a good solid well designed boat....

Thank you. Since I posted, I also spoke with my broker and he also confirmed that we would have to wait for a good weather window.

I would have never guessed that ice is not a conductor.

Winter survey question

I have a question about looking at or surveying boats in the winter. We want to look at a boat in frozen northern Ohio. One of my concerns about an older boat is the possibility of a wet core. Is...

Thanks. Both of you are saying she is a good boat, better than average. That covers local sailing in the Bay.

Marty, I did not notice that was your boat. She looks like a fine boat. Head room is important to me in part because I intend to spend time on her. More than just day sailing. I like to get...

The PSC 31 is off the list. Its a lot more fun to be on a responsive boat and the serious off shore stuff is not in the short term future. Its a beautiful boat, but the 31 is off the list.

Thanks for the tips. The weather is a bit sketchy right now and this may not be a good weekend to go out. We are planning on spending a little time on the Tartan and may also look at a Pearson 10.

OK. I saw a tool at Home Depot that was an eye and light on the end of a 3' probe. That would allow me to see the center of the beam.

How would I check the decks? They are firm and sound OK to...

I agree with you. The O'Day could make longer trips but it would be a stretch. That is what stopped me from making a commitment. It is a nice boat but may not be my boat.
