I found a rare opportunity to buy a Columbia
8.3 with very little time it. This boat was literally only driven to church on Sunday's by a little old lady. The engine
a 3 cylinder yanmer desiel only has 220hrs on it. Now it has been out of the water
since the couple passed about 7 years ago. When they did sail it, thy only did so on weekend and only to one spot approx 16miles total trip. It was stored out side but covered but the mast
was left up. It comes with main and jib
, they are the original ones but have been stored indoors. The question is if I can this boat super cheep around $6000 is it worth it. I would of course get a survey
done before purchase
. What kind of cost would I be looking at to this boat going again. I can handle doing all the cosmetic work but when it comes to the more technical work I would have to hire some help.
Any help would be greatly appreaceted.
