I have been looking at three older sailboats for sale
, possible for for me?
They are all a design from Van de Stadt, they look a little bit alike, and they are from the -80s. The keel
is a iron sword, bolted on with stainless pins and nuts. They all have had some keel
problems with grounding and leeks. This was maybe the beginning of the fin keel period. The rest of the boat
is a healthy construction on all three of them. Any comments?
