Letís start with it is a Tartan. So if she was damaged in a grounding, it had to be a hard one. Suggest you get some photos of the damage, a quote to repair it by a pro and then add 50%. Keep in mind if the damage is significant - getting insurance after a DIY repair may be a challenge

There are so many great deals out there, sounds like a "run away",

unless it's **exactly** what you're looking for and an obviously incredible bargain otherwise

Not all groundings are equal.

Beautiful little boat. It was mentioned earlier in the thread, but the price has come way down to $15,500.
