It could be an excellent deal but there is no way to know without inspecting the boat and trailer. I saw a 1975 in Mansfield Ohio for 3k. PLEASE OP...can you provide more details? If you spend $900 how bad could it be? if you want help from well meaning folks here, give us more information please. The answer is yes--it's a really good deal...if....and if and if and if....and if....etc etc etc

There is just not enough information...go look at here...take pictures, you will need the trailer inspected. How are the sails? Is it well equipped? Is there an outboard? One weird thing is he admits the boat is dirty and says he'll goo and ask MORE if he cleans it? That's odd... why not clean it and make it presentable and ask a higher price and go down if needed but to say he'll go p if you want her cleaned? Is he hiding something? The trailer alone could be well over $900 in value...but...just take a good look and then go for it--not worth a survey or much more time and energy..

A word of advice...if you or any OP wants ideas, comments or suggestions from we the other members--at least do your basic homework so we can help you....and ...so much of these types of questions depends on who you are and what is your skill level rather than the boat alone. How well can you asses the condition? Prices for such a mass produced boat ca be determined easily via the internet. Do your homework and then come back here so we can be helpful to you.

$900 with a swim ladder a trailer and roller furling is probably a very good deal--if it is not a mildewy wreck..but only you can tell that. Stop asking for ideas and comments until you at least find out if it is still for sale...if you want to learn values of oday 22's it can be easily learned online..there is not likely to be an outboard or it would have been mentioned and pictured. Rigging even if quite old may be okay--it's just a small light boat and you are not going to Cape Horn...now go learn more and then come back...or move on to another boat

Hard to imagine it would be a bad deal at $700....just check everything out...if it floats you have a winner it would seem...even as salvage the boat and trailer would possibly fetch the same amount....
