If your 6'2" your not going to like a choate. They are a racer
not designed to be below much. I'm 5'8" so I'm good with it. The head
room in the Solon is about 6', less up forward.
From the ad it looks like the stripped down racer
I had so it would take a lot of work to make it livable. The one in the ad has less storage
then mine and probably has small fuel
and water tanks
. The v-berth is actually a sail loft. It didn't show a head
The boat will take a lot of work to get to a cruising condition. No mast
, no windlass
, no storage
spaces and what ever else is missing. I paid more for my new Genoa
then what they are asking for that whole boat. Heck, to replace the all lead keel
would cost more then the whole boat.
It would be great for someone who would want a kit to start with but as a beginner I'd say forget it! You would have to have a lot of knowledge to bring this back to a useable condition.
BTW it's not a ketch
and the draft
is more like 7' 0"
