Critique My New Boat

Hello everyone and thank you in advance for your cooperation. I am new at this so bare with me please.
Below I have posted a link to a vessel I have recently purchased. I have done my own research, and had a professional survey also. I am posting this to see what the general public think about this boat. I look forward to hearing from everyone, good or bad. Thank you, Dave

Re: Critique my new boat

It's a bit like closing the barn doors after the horses have scattered, isn't it? I don't want to rain on your parade. You're an owner, so, enjoy!

Nice boat, good price, enjoy it rather than second guessing your purchase.

Main area of worries/things to watch on those I've seen in Spain is the Alloy steering gear under the aft bunk and the keel bolts....
Otherwise they've great accomodation... an enormous aft berth... don't sail to badly and a great cruiser/liveaboard for the Islands/Coastal travel..
Enjoy...

Does it float?

Will the sails hold up until you need new ones?

Is the rigging sound?

Is the engine sound?

The rest is just icing.

YOU HAVE A SAIL BOAT!!!!!! Mazel tov!

PS I'm not an Ebay user so I'm not real familiar with it, but I couldn't find the listing.

Re: Critique My New Boat

I agree with Bangkaboat, and the value is for you to decide. But an important criteria is what did you actually pay for it?

Re: Critique My New Boat

Asking for opinions about a boat is very dificult unless you decribe how you are planning to use it. Its like asking someone what are the best shoes; a runway model will more than likely have a very different answer then a construction worker. If you were to give us more information about how you are planning to use the boat you might get better information. Are you planning to live aboard, costal cruise, use for blue water crossings, ect, ect?

The couple next to me in Charleston refitted one of these. Their worry was the deck. Just watch for soft spots. Other than that looks good and provides lots of space for it's size.

Re: Critique My New Boat

you should be able to enjoy it in gulf and caribean without much difficulty--has a diesel, has electronix--old ones work, so isnt a big deal, and looks to be in fairly decent shape-- you can check for defects after purchase-- but i bet she will get ye to carribean ok. has a lot of freeboard, but that helps keep out seas. also helps keep out thieves in darkness when yours is only difficult to access boat in harbor. good luck to ye with this deal..

Re: Critique My New Boat

Will all that "hoopla' hanging off the rear be an issue? Say in a following sea, or cause it to be harder to control due to windage?
