Nice boat, that Cheoy Lee
. But you won't come near it at $10K. Send a message to the seller and ask what the reserve is. I'll bet $20K plus.
Now as far at the cockpit-less beastie goes, I'm going to go out on a limb and say Go ahead and make an offer *subject to survey*. From what I can make out in the photos, all the gear
appears to be there, and if it all works so much for the good. Now that cockpit
is easy to work in. You park your duff on the deck
, stick your feet in the well and you are fine. Only thing is you don't have any back support. But thats a thing only you can tell if you can live with it. Even so there are ways of adding removable backrests so thats no problem. The interior
has a very good amount of space, given its a flush deck
design for all intents. You have a large bunk in the stern, and a couple of singles up forward.
She will be wet if the weather
Sierra, but again, that is up to you how much you can take. The cockpit
on both of mine are deep bathtubs and you are half buried below deck level if sitting in the cockpit. Vision forward is a pain for that reason.... Here you are at deck level with nothing to impede your view but the little doghouse. Most of the time I'm sitting on the lazarette hatches on Espina or on the cockpit combing on Sabre
Dance. The hatches are small and the combings are narrow. On this boat you will have lots of space for your derriere. Given the small combing at the front of the cockpit area, I suspect under most conditions you will be fairly dry. That combing will keep the water
from hitting you. But it will be a very wet derriere if the boat starts to take solid water
over the side or bow.
Just one thing. If you do buy her, for god sakes paint
. My eyes just about melted from those pictures! Talk about colorful!
