I am looking to buy a Sabre 34 Mk 1 as soon as I find one I can aford. I looked at one this weekend which with an asking price of 34k. It has been on the market for about a month. They have just dropped the ask price to 27k. That's a great price for this boat so I went and saw it. The boat is in good shape, but it has a very strange problem with the gellcoat on the topesides (sides of the hull). There are no bouble-like blisters but there are hundreds of little cracks (about 1/8 inch long)that seem like the gellcoat is cracking from the inside out. These are like little slits with slightly raised edges. You can barely see them, but you can sure feel them. The seem to run the length of boat sides of the boat. They do not seem to be structual, but they clearly represent a problem. Has anyone else come across anything like this? Thanks. Jerry Roberts, NYC
