Well ive been really thinking about this hard for the past couple of days. The pearson
triton really has caught my interest with its offshore
sailing potential and its lines. after triton318 suggested this boat i started researching it and it seems like the boat is very safe, very forgiveable, very seaworthy
, very simple to sail. ive found a pearson
triton in my area that hasnt been in the water
in three years, he says the hull
is solid and the boat is in good sailing condition right now. He wants 6k but says that its negotiable. hoping i could get it around 4k...idk if thats unreasonable.
brand new head
and main sails
(also has old head
, main, and spiniker)
brand new windvane(never used, prof installed)
brand new roller furler
floor needs to be redone
i dont mind the interior
work, i acutally would like to redo the interior to make it nice and customize for myself. Im assuming that the new floor would be just a little harder than installing wood floors in a house, just a little costly with the price
and time consuming. Also with it only being a 28' boat that i could bang out the interior in about 4 solid weekends with some week nights thrown in. this is with the help of my father and also haveing someone else make the cusions.
im just looking for some input. what do you think of the boat? the price
? how much work is it? should i get a marine survey
? any other comments, advice, ect... would be appreciated.
