I see the OP wandered off after asking his question. I am also on the lookout for an owner of a cheoy lee
. If you are still there I have plenty of Q’s as Im viewing a 1980 model at the weekend.
How does it handle under sail, motor
is it a 50/50 most days or will it really sail in a blow? (can it be solo’d or with 2?) and at anchor
- is it rolly?
Have you tried folding props - do you alternate the twin engines?
Any serious issues to look for? Have you made any major mods? I know the later 53 has an upper helm
, forcing a sloop
rig. Ive also see a 52 converted for this but I like the benefits of ketch
rig for my kind of plodding.
Also - whats all that glass make it like in the heat?
