Well, quick update.
After my good friend (Master Mariner/surveyor/Ocean Ticket dude) you get the idea--looked it over.
I decided to go for it.
He found a lot of cosmetic stuff. Couple of small deck
problems. Nothing that gave red flags
of a break the deal problem.
They hired (complete yacht service) out of Ft Lauderdale to do a complete workover of the engine
. Replacing oil
line that had a pinhole in it. Impeller replaced and tuned up.
Dove the boat. Great. Cutlass great.
Mast-rigging-good. Little older but everything solid.
were pro cleaned and inspected by loft, then folded and stored.
Remember these people were wanting to sail the world at 75 yrs old and never got but 5 miles from purchase
to marina in Ft Lauderadale then refitted and never moved in 3 yrs.
I felt for them, the wife was getting emotional and he was not happy either.
and thru holes rock solid.
Electronics-way great. Never hardly used Garmin
740s with Radar(never used).
VHF-AIS. New standard horizon 2100 with extra remote
Boat was wired by marine
pro with Magnum 3000wat Inverter/Charger.
All new fore to aft wiring
Brand new davits
Brand new Lewmar
1000 pro windlass
2 new CQR
45lb never in water
. With new 3/8 chain never in water
. Maybe 200ft.
Bunch of shore power
lines and dock
lines never used.
Crap loads of stainless hardware
Looks like all of the water/head hoses are maybe 2 yrs old.
Not so good.
from non use. Dirty from some dogs
that were on board for 3 months.
not there. Toliet that is.
have all got to be removed.
WIll probably do a deadlight fix on most of them. There are 12 total.
Injectors are a little rusty.
Water pump for P/S fresh water tanks
Nasty carpeting on hulls gotta go.
Main lines and jib
Bad repair job fore on the deck
from a vent replacement.
Gotta do some cutting and glassing.
A few stanchion posts have some really bad compression
Alot of cutting and glassing. Right at the hull/deck edge.
More cleaning-thats about it.
Bringing it down to the Keys this weekend - maybe- storm a brewing.
Its a unfounded boat, so we are gonna take it easy.
Thx for all of your remarks. I am happy to be back on crusiersforum
Been too long.
