...so feeling your pain!!!
I'm in Cali boat shopping
, hiking (something landlubbers do) enjoying vertical elevation gains versus the flatness of Florida
, even some farming! But mostly boat shopping
is the mission.
I went to investigate a Finnish boat a Targa 96...has a ceased yanmar
with same very sail drive system I believe which seller described as "corroded"
1979 Targa 96 sailboat for sale in California
Did a little Internet
searching targa 96s and found a forum where people were discussing this very boat and described it as derelict. Saying another free boat that wasn't worth salvaging much less restoring...
So glad I never looked at the boat after you threw out the numbers of fixing a corroded sail drive body yikes!!!
Hope the best for you....
