A little update since I have not looked at this for almost 3 months.
I bought the boat (which is why I haven't looked here lately - too busy). Now almost three months into a refit
. NONE of the typical scary stuff one hears about CT & Formosa
boats. Original teak
decks with no signs of core rot
, NOT a "leaky teaky", and appears to be very well built. I can safely say that now that I have crawled every inch of her, traced every wire, and examined every feature. Mystique has been sitting for about 10 years, so there are "iron worms" to exterminate, like corroded wiring
and decade old fuel
. Has a rebuilt motor
that has never left the dock
and the boat has never been cruised if even offshore
. That is all going to change soon.
