has a foot of water
to bottom of motor!, no sails
I am very well aware that this is incomplete info, nontheless constructive advice

The words "questionable condition" can translate into bankruptcy and a multi-year prison sentence on land...
...that having been said, the boat
itself is pretty close to my ideal cruising boat
given its draft/seakindliness/lines and many seem to share that opinion. Unfortunately, SWMBO does not.
