Issues with the Coronado 35

Dear Forum:

I may have found a Coronado 35.

However, it does need work. I don't mind as I am pretty handy.

Are there any inherent structural issues for which I should verify before buying, (I.E. quirks particular to the Coronado 35)?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Fernao

Re: Issues with the Coronado 35

My marina neighbor sold his 35 three years ago. He got $15,000 for it. (he said)??. He mentioned problems with chain plate mounting from water leaks and constant tinkering with the Palmer gas engine. If you need parts for a Palmer, visit the International Tractor dealer. Some of those engines were used in the Cuib Cadet tractor.

Great liveaboard with lots of room below decks! I don't know how it would handle sailing with such a high freeboard.
kind regards,
