Great boats. I've been on a pile of them here in Maine
. Very popular, had a buddy sell his mint early 80's 28' for 32k. He had three buyers in a buyers war! I think they sail great and are comfortable. I think they've got great lines.
30 is a great size for single
hand sailing and living.
Offset prop on your model? Some folks complain about lack of straight reverse, but the pointy end is the other way I say.
30 y/o boat is gonna leak, from the top is better than the bottom
Moisture is to be expected, easy fixes: gaskets, sealant
, butyl tape etc.. Spongy decks for me is a walk away. Surveyor
will differentiate on paper.
My 2 cents. Great boats. Love 'em.
