Yeah, I'm assuming that after all this time he might be open to offers, but with that kind of diatribe, it sounds like he's had a few lowballers...

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

In Toronto, a 1983 Nonsuch 26 is for sale $25K Cdn (~$18K US).

These are interesting boats for coastal cruising, single-handing or liveaboard. They have massive interiors for their size. They usually sell quickly to aficionados.

This one seems to be in good shape, has good recently upgraded gear, 21 hp Westerbeke.

It doesn't appear to have awnings or dodger/bimini. No mention of ground tackle - presumably an oversight in the listing.

1986 Hunter 40' Legend - $12000


Looks like it's in okay shape, just neglected and could use some varnish inside.

CaptWho, that looks a good price? I just wonder about the stains around the keel hull join? Still that looks like a lot of fun for 12g.
Cheers

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

If you're talking about those 3 little black spots, I have no idea. You can't really get a good view of them. I'd sincerely doubt that it's anything serious. Those streaks are drip marks on the antifouling.

I just went on Yachtworld to check on Legends and this is the least expensive 40' that I found. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats-for...=legend&page=2

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I admire your optimism CaptWho but if you look clearly at the photo you can see a distinct crack/line where those water satins start on the keel?
Still for $12,000 it is a lot of boat.
Cheers

Oh, crap! I was looking at the wrong picture. I see what you're talking about. That doesn't look good. That would take some careful examination before a purchase.


Other than that... lol

A lot of fin keel boats in my area have loose caulk in the keel/hull join, if that's what it is. People ream it out and repack it every year or so. Possibly not an issue.

The boat looks like it might have been used as a liveaboard, pretty grungy, not the worst I've seen. I think the reason that varnish goes like that is that is has been wet, a lot.

It has plastic Bomar Pompanette portlights that are probably in need of replacement if original. I hate them because when installed on a sloping cabin side they always trap a blob of water on the outside that drips in when you open them; also when you hit your head on the screws (which you will do) it hurts like hell

One of the pictures, #14, has something weird on the right side on the bulkhead above the shelf. Looks like condensation damage?

It probably smells moldy.

Very nice. Photos look good.

Low engine hours. Can't see any issues apart from tired interior upholstery (to be expected) and carpet on the cabin sole (a personal dislike).

Cockpit is small and I'm not a fan of the traveller position in the middle of the bridge deck/companionway.

I like the bow platform and the davits, though - if in good condition. I also like the large number of ports. And the heater.

It appears to be a cutter. Can't see the staysail stay on the docked boat, perhaps it detaches (Solent stay)?

Heck, I've bought a similar boat in worse condition for about the same money!

$6000 for this boat. It might deserve a good look.

Amateur build, fibreglass over steel? Engine on the side?

Run far away, unless you want to live aboard and not move it. (You will still be faced with the disposal problem that the present owner has when you are done with it.)

This boat is a project-and-a-half, imo. There are literally thousands of similar propositions, many would be more worth "restoring".

Run far, far, away!

Disclaimer: We once bought a large steel boat, amateur build. It was a mistake; although we had our fun on it - it was mostly a learning process in humility and the proportion of sailing to maintenance was closer to zero than I recommend.

Actually it says epoxy and glass over “cemented steel”. I take that to be ferrocement with a skin of glass. Even worse than glass over steel.
