Hi everyone.

Recently I found this boat forsale about 5 hours away. It has been in indoor storage for approx. 4+ years. Prior to being stored it had been owned by a capable wooden boat lover. He gave it to a friend and the friend gave it to his son. The son is not a sailor and so stored it hoping to sail. Life got in the way, (kids and family etc) and so the decision was made to sell the boat.

I have been in contact with the Secretary of the Anphibi-Con Association and he has looked at the in depth pictures that the seller has given me. They are way to numerous to post here. I think I am willing to make an offer as is/where is. With out a survey, for about $1000. It is fairly clean inside and out and no obvious signs of rot or other major repair work being needed. The biggest concern for me to go and get it would be the wheel bearings and tires on the trailer. Sails (2) 9 Hp outboard, compass, and other miscellaneous stuff is included.

Do any immediate thoughts come to mind if you were to contemplate the same project.

The owner claims that with clean up and minor caulking. It should be able to go in the water and sail. I have my reservations. Don't really want to go down with my first Command.

Help Please...

Tom..:)

FWIW, Tom, they're both Red, White and Blue.

What's not to like. Go for it.
