Luger Voyager 30

I'm looking at a Luger Voyager 30. I presently live on the shores of Lake Michigan, in Chicago, and I'm thinking about buying one of these for a couple thousand. The owner says it doesn't have a headliner, just the bare under-deck (if that's a term) with fittings visible, etc.

He's been sailing it on Lake Michigan for 18 years and is retiring; now wants to unload it. He says there is 9 hp two-stroke outboard that's a few years old, some old but sturdy sails, and one window (portlight?) that's leaking.

I'm new to boats bigger than 15 feet, and new to sailing a yacht at all. But I think this might make a good starter that I can keep on a buoy in the harbor, take on weekend or week-long trips on the lake. Other possible trips include making it to the atlantic and down to the bahamas, which would necessarily be a couple of months.

I'd really appreciate any thoughts on this boat, if you have anything to contribute to my odyssey.

What do I need to look out for? Are there any special difficulties I might encounter? Weak spots?

Thank you,

Actually looks a substantial vessel, from a decent designer even if she won't be the 'prettiest girl at the dance'..

Finish quality is always going to be the big variable with what were predominantly kit boats.
