Congratulations on your find! Ingrids are awesome boats. But, as you probably already know, there is no such thing as a free boat! :-)
Nada is in remarkably good condition. She has been abandoned for a few years, and wasn't covered, so you can imagine that the desk and topsides need some work
, but down below she is, as the previous owner left her, (he bought her from Nigel, spent 3 weekends on the boat
from what we can gather from the log, had her hauled and winterized). All her systems will need to be looked at, and tanks
inspected, and lots new fresh paint
. We hope to have her sailing very soon, and we are serious about sharing the experience with other sailors. Nigel was a legend, and I have personally benefitted from the knowledge in his books
We have only just concluded the deal, so we have literally only spent a few hours aboard. I am sure there are going to be many pleasant and unpleasant surprises waiting for us. We look forward to sharing our experience on this board.
