Must be the spring weather
here, but I went to Texas
and bought a Beneteau
265 for $6K. I had little time to scout her before plunking down the dough. Now i worry about things I couldn't check out.
... they leave the boats in the water
year round. This boat has been out once in 15 years. i wonder what this does to a hull
? The sun seems to have melted a lot of the rubber deck
items. (we pull our boats in the winter - didn't think about it I guess)
Chainplates... The 265 has the chainplates carefully hidden away inside a fiberglass
beam. the access panels
were caulked shut on the inside. I'll bet the drain holes on the outside have been plugged for 15 years. Wonder what i'll find when i open this up finally.
Oh well, how bad could it be. One more adventure.
