I second mike's comments about fresh water boat. My OG was up in lake Texoma for twenty years. Her steel backing plates
look band new along with her thru hulls (though I will disassemble the t hull
this spring so we will see internally how they faired...).
I have tried and tried to post a pic of the schooner downeaster but can't, the brokerage sign has been taken down in the last week or so but I don't think it has sold. I have called the marina to see if they will pass my phone
number onto the owner. If I remember correctly my friend said it was very good condition down below with minor IKE damage up on deck
(I have photos of that too).
Here is a link to a Cheoy Lee
that has been for sale
for at least 3 years cheoy lee luders
she is not as pristine as they make her out to be but she is a really beautiful yacht (a diamond in the rough). The owner recently removed her teak
decks (the teak
decks are what gave the CL the nick name Cheoy leakys). Anyways, they apparently gel coated
the decks which I find unusual. If you are interested in the cheoy lee
I will go take a look and see if she is worth pursuing. I believe she would sell much lower than asking.
