Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I've been watching this Peterson 34 and spoke to the owner. Its in Ft. Pierce, FL price has dropped from 30k to 12.5k. Needs work but owner has done a lot of work.

While looking at countless photos of all kinds of sailboats, Iíve noticed something that has always bothered me about the pictures shown of the diesel motor. It is obvious that it has been spray painted to look all shiny and new. Please donít crucify me; but why are all the hoses and pipes and everything also spray painted? I am really curious as to why no effort is made to mask all that stuff before spray painting the motor?

Looking forward to a sensible explanation in answer to this.
I think it's just laziness. It takes almost no time to spray if you don't bother masking. I guess to a novice eye, shiny paint can give an initial impression of good condition. To me, it's just so obviously intended to cover ugly stuff up that I tend to assume a really decrepit engine when I see paint with overspray.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

The first time I tried to sell our last sailboat I cleaned up the boat but did not touch the motor which had some surface rust in a few places & looked it's age. Several people looked at the boat but no offers. Then I painted the engine so that it looked like new. I sold the boat in 2 weeks & had several offers. Say what you will but there is a psychological effect that is undeniable. When a boat looks good, smells good & the motor looks well maintained the typical buyer will assume that the boat and motor are well maintained.

Conversely, a boat that needs cleaning, smells bad & has a rusty motor will have a hard time selling no matter how well it's maintained.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Here is an interesting opportunity at 1 grand. The S&S Northstar 500 was an early IOR 1/4 tonner which means it is probably pretty solid as the rule encouraged strong boats. As boats of her time, go, she wasn't a dog, either. Mass Bay PHRF rates then at 228. In terms of design evolution, Ron Holland's 1/4 tonner, Eighteen, was a screamer and made all the older designs obsolete overnight. This is one of the obsoleted designs.

That said, the design features a skeg-hung rudder and strong keel-hull joint both of which are popular with small boat voyagers. I am over boated...

I was walking the docks last weekend in HNL after work and this boat caught my eye. It's a great lay-out and a lot of boat but not only "needs work," it needs a lot of it.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I think the $1000 must have been a mistake on the seller's part. I saw it at 1K also, but it's $5K now.
