    Looks like a bargain.
    But... looks can be deceiving.
    I'd want a full survey.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
    Skiing is the next best thing to having wings.

    Yup. If it's wood I'd want a full survey, especially being a fresh water boat. Frozen snot in fresh water...meh...no biggie, but wood....

    I've looked at that ad a few times. Nice boat, nice price, but what is a Dunnigan and how would you get the boat out of there? Is there a Travelift on Pend Oreille?

    Never mind, after looking at the fifth photo, there must be.

    Also, how do you guys feel about lifelines on older boats?

    I'm not particularly a traditionist. I like lifelines on pretty much anything. But then I've spent much of my sailing time near shore and offshore where they're required.
