Compass 29

Used to own one.

Very slow to windward, unless re-engined will probable have a Yanmar 2 cyl. 12hp engine, also slow.

However the good news is they are a very good sea boat.

Check out for osmosis, check rudder pintle bearings, and stern tube, also be sure to check condition of window frames as most of them are worn out by now and leak.

There is a Compass Yacht Owners forum with unlimited advice.

Good coastal cruiser if time is of no importance..
