If you are good at repairs
and sort out what needs to be done it is not a bad deal. I can't even buy a trailer here for that kind of money
. The American doesn't have a super positive reputation but then again you aren't paying too much. You can spend lots of money
or get them through a used sail broker for pretty cheap
($400 to $1000).
Its best for you to go look at the boat with a knowledgeable friend and check the mast
and boom and rigging
. Those things add up real quick if they have to be replaced.
Good luck in your search for a bargain.
