This looks like the boat I visited in AMerican Samoa in 2002-it had broken chainplates and was a mess with a drunken owner-he wanted to sell it for $15k.

Re: 1975 Fuji 45' ketch

We're moving back to the mainland from Hawaii and not going cruising anytime soon. No money, another kid on the way,,,It's difficult to maintain the boat on a mooring over here in Hawaii. I would rather have someone take her south, rather than me sailing back to California. cheers

She's moored in Reeds Bay, Hilo. Price down to $58k. She only needs topside paint, sail/hatch covers and new dodger canvas.
