Well interesting news...
Somebody beat me to the belize ...offered the same price
that I had offered but a day or so earlier .( I didn't want to get into a bidding war so I stepped back - mildly regretting that decision now..)
As it turns out, a Bahia
or two have popped up in my region .... Amazingly both in farly good condition and within arms reach of what I can afford ..
Condition of both appears to be good .... I wonder if these bigger boats are affordable because people can't get moorings for them at the local marina .
Any ideas as to why they seem to sell for roughly the same price as the belize -
(Other than flogged engines / sails
/ general wear and tear ?)
