Our family bought the boat (second hand) in the late 80s. We actively sailed it and took very good care of her. My father died in the late 90's. Since then its been hard to think about selling it. The boat has been out of the water since about 2000, in the yard. Top sides were awl griped blue in 2003 or so, but the boat was never splashed (though every other year the yard sticks the boat in the water to run the engine for a bit) It has full set of sails, electronics, etc. It needs some good cleaning inside and out, plus some teak work. I truly love this boat, but I live in the mid-west now so its hard to justify owning it, and moving it to lake Michigan would be a sin given her blue water heritage.
