Re: Aleution 51 Ketch 1977

Unless its the camera, signs of lot's of leaks and wood damage, probably due to teak decks or hardware and ports not being maintained properly. Id ask for a few videos of all the wood sash and behind all the storage lockers etc, before traveling there. Pictures can make a pile of crap look pretty.

Re: Aleution 51 Ketch 1977

The bungs on the teak deck are deteriorated. Run.

Then again it comes with an undisclosed number of huge wenches, which might be a plus for you depending on your tastes.
