Aloha and welcome aboard!
There is a search engine by my signature line. You might want to see if you can find some answers there.
Obviously I am not going to change your mind and I won't try to but finding a fixer for the price you said will get you more headaches than sailing time in my opinion unless you are extremely lucky.
eBay and Craigslist are good places to shop for cheap boats. Many donated boats go for low prices on eBay.
Good luck.
kind regards,

Sorry about that, i posted pics on my blog.
Thought it was going to be delivered yesterday but apparently I misunderstood. not upset though. the seller, who is also delivering it checked out the trailer and greased the bearings for me.
As soon as it gets here, I'll take better pics, these are off the vid my son took and just to detailed to get a good idea .
