    If the survey comes out OK, I'd jump on that one. Good find. For 15K you can afford to put a little more in her I would think.

    Take a look at pic # 3. They may be part of the package. :(

    Good luck! Looks like a well-maintained and upgraded boat. What's the registration on the hull? Odd.

    That does indeed look to me like just the cover. Easy to tell, just unfurl the jib. Go "slip sailing" for a bit and look at the sails. OTOH, if that jib was new in 2014, it has had some rough times to tear the cover already. Maybe the boat is missing spreader tips. Maybe the po let it flog itself to the point the cover ripped.

    But overall that boat looks decent from the pics.

    Yes, that's just the sacrificial canvas cover, I have mine on my Sailrite at the moment. It can be repaired without replacing it all.

    Words in a sales ad that should wave the caution flag.
    1. completly refurbished
    2. most of the boat has been redone and rentivated over the past few years .
    3. the boat will come with everything you need to set sail that same day
    The furler is a "Pro Furler". These units hcan have problems. You need to furl and unfurl the sail a couple of times. There is a '2/3 donut' at the top of the furler. Does the tang from the furler hoist match up with the donut. Is the donut stationary while the sail is being furled. Does the line roll smoothly on to the furling drum? Is the line distributed evenly? This will be a 1800-2500 bill to replace.

    New standing rigging 2014. Was this done professionally or a DYI by the owner? What materials were used? Do the rigging wires match the boats design standards?

    Good luck Zack.

    You're too late.
    It's listed on Yachtworld as "sold".

    I have to say, the interior and engine looked reasonably good in the pics.
    If it floats, the motor runs, nothing is rotten, and the sails go up and catch wind, it's well worth $7,500.

    Oh. :)
    And I had done a cursory review to see if anyone saw it was sold.
    Too cursory, apparently.
