Okay, so I've been boat shopping
. This one wasn't at the top of my list of desired boats, but the owner is a friend who has to get rid of it quick and dropped the price
to a third of the asking ($1,500). Seeing as how I'm new to sailing and boat owner ship, I'd like see what you guys thought. It's a bit of a fixer-up, but I'm prepared and actually looking forward to spending time getting her spiffed up.
1971 O-day 22' includes some worn sails
and trailer. I'm told the Bottom Paint
is somewhat new. The lines are old, but look usable. The boat itself looks like it's been sitting un-touched on the trailer for awhile. Tires are low/flat. The deck
really needs paint
. There are a few voids on the transom.. and probably 30 other small things need fixing
There is standing water
in the cabin
. Not a lot, and it appears to be entering through the companionway hatch
that isn't very secure. Should be a simple fix (or tarp it)
I noticed this void where the trailer attaches. I assume it's not serious?
