So I went and checked out this Ericson 35 MK III, and it's been neglected.
The biggest thing is that the bottom aft part of the keel
has been damaged slightly as if it got caught between two large rocks. Say maybe 1-2" up and twisted over 3-4"
The boat draws 6'2" and he took it too the Bahamas
and maybe he got in a bit of trouble there.
I'm on my first monohull
at the moment so don't have a lot of experience with them
My question is could this have damaged the boat. I didn't look closely for cracks etc because I was not happy with the overall appearance. (but) The guy has dropped the price
again down to $28,000
