I am very well aware that this is incomplete info, nontheless constructive advice would be appreciated

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.

When I read the opening post, I chuckled.

Oh...the appeal of a cheeeeep boat...."needs a little TLC" is such a sweet bit of bait...
