slickhead, the pictures on Craigslist show an interesting design alteration. Look at the pictures to confirm this. I am seeing that the aft mainstrength crossarm, the ones that have the "keyhole" in them, is located just aft of the aft companionway
. This is just like the 37. The builder
then used the next space to enlarge the galley section to two frames in length, followed by the conventional sterncastle dinette. As far as structural consequences, John Marples would be a better judge than I, but my gut says it's not as good as the design position. At any rate, it's a significant modification and could affect the value of the boat. Also, you need to check with John regarding if it is indeed a licensed boat. Does it have a sail number? Mine, for example, issued when I bought the plans was sail number 68 in 1973 or 74. I'm not sure when I actually bought them, but I began building in 1974 and launched in 1978. No license
to build, coupled with significant structural modification, translates as a serious reduction in value, at least to me.
