Doodles, can you say more about the deck issues?
Sure. The hull
but the deck was a plywood core
and there had been several areas of repairs
most of which had been in the last few years. I could also see numerous additional areas that were going to need replacing. The previous repairs
looked like they had been done well but I never looked into who did them. I walked away because I needed a boat to live on right then and I saw too much deck work and not enough time to deal with it. Also, there was not a good berth for a liveaboard
couple. There are a couple settees and a large quarter berth but it was not big enough for the two of us and I'm a little over 6'. It had a wonderful galley
though and the forepeak was a little workshop area that I would die for. Never got it surveyed but if there were no other major issues (remember its aluminum) and you had the time to get the deck repairs done I think you would have a fantastic boat. I understand the builder
(Kestaloo) is top rate. They are asking $35K for it but our contract
was for $30 and when we walked away they were willing to come down some more to keep the deal so I'd guess you could get it for $25k, maybe less. Its been for sale
for a couple years but this is the first listing on the internet
I seen or know of.
