Went to see the first sail boat that I was thinking that I might buy. My wife and I set off and traveled 150 miles in glorious sunshine thinking this could be it, our first boat :-). We saw all the pictures on a web site and it looked pretty good for the asking price
. The anticipation was very exciting..
But it was not to be... sadly the boat although not bad on the outside it was disgusting on the inside. Roof lining was coming away from the windows and damp specks all over the place. GRP shell was peeling in the forward cabin
.. Although she was out the water
there was loads on the inside, I thought it was meant to be the other way around. There was so much moisture in the air it would be impossible for it not to have an effect on the electrical
Although I could still see a certain beauty in her it was sad to see the sorry state she was now in...
I was also informed she was going back into the water
this April so I hope she doesn't sink.. I can't imagine anyone would buy her in her current
condition but I'll wait and see if the current
owners give her a face lift
and clean her bogin toilet...
I think it would be better all round If the currents owners gave me there sick boat for free and I could spend the asking price
on her refurbishment and bring her back to life...
(No I'm asking for a free Boat LOL)
Anyway it was a lot of money
for a sad old lady....We still enjoyed our day..
The hunt goes on..
