Re: Bought my 1st sailboat

The haul out, hull is fine, but meglected. Propneeds replacing, lots of metal showing on the keel, keel bolts are all rusted and the plates flaking. Nothing too bad, I'm told, but how would I know?

Re: Bought my 1st sailboat

For our education can you tell us what the issue was with the keel on Catharsis? Were there signs of structural damage or instability that the surveyor found?

I can only tell you that the surveyor thought that the plates needed replacing, lots of rust detrioration, and that there were some leaks. Also that the bolts might need replacing. He pointed out that one of the nuts was almost completely corroded in one area. Also, there was extensive demetaling on the outside of the keel, as well as of the prop. Whenthe yard got in there they felt that they would need to drop the jeel and filly replace the bolts in order to seal up the leaks. There was a good deal of water in the dry bilge about the keel plates.

So short answer, yes. There were structural problems related to corrosion. I'm not sure what is meant by "stability." If you're asking if the keel wobbled back and forth, the answer is no. If you're referring to holding point under sail, I did not investigate that issue.

The sad part is that I had formed a friendship with the owner, and here he is trying to foist this decrepid wreck on me. A tad hyperbolic, but the meaning is the same. He was all for saving me money by trying to convince me that a survey was unecessary. I go by an axom, however, when it comes to buying boats. One that has served me well. It goes a little something like this: "I'm more certain to get a survey on a boat than wear a condom when I'm f**king."

And I always suit up for that latter
