"1977 Pearson 30. Excellent condition. This boat was dry stored for 17 years by original owner so she is far younger than her vintage.

2009 Main Sail, 2011 155% Genoa, Enginerebuilt in 2010, New fuel tank 2014, new interior 2010, Original Edson Wheel steerng, Original Diesel power."

I'm not sure about excellent condition, is it like with cars where almost no vehicles really qualify for the excellent stamp?

Seems a mid point asking price for the boat and vintage.

If it was sitting idle in the garage, there are chances of many things going wrong for the boat. Especially i the garage is not properly insulated or ventilated the climate and humidity may ruin the wooden structure of the boat. And it is exactly due to these reasons that I have stored mine at Migson Public Storage as they also offer boat storage service. My boat stays with them during the long winters at Brampton. They will ensure that the boat is not affected by the extreme climate variations, temperatures or humidity.
