That boat looks about as bad as the Carver we bought with trees growing in the cockpit. The Carver is better than new now. If it's the boat you want, don't lose it.

-I've got a house site to prepare and a daughter-in-law with terminal cancer plus a business to run without the CEO ( who is tied up in Springfield with the legal issues of adopting our granddaughter.)With everything going on in Springfield, I really don't have the time to even recover the boat.

I may buy it and take my chances with the marina holding it for a few months.

This will be a full rebuild taken down to the fiberglass and frame. A two year endeavor at best. One of my employees is a former cabinet make who says he can do all the teak joinery.

I will need to overhaul and re-bed all the running gear as well. New lines, stays, and cables. The boat will be new when done. I can do it all outside my company making the machine shop available.

It is a tempting prospect.

you could pay a pro:

there is this:
All Boat Angel boats are not viewable unless otherwise stated
I do not need to view the boat. I know this model stem to stern as I once owned one.
The pictures tell me enough
There is no auxiliary so any concerns about that question is mute.

The hull is well founded by this manufacturer at about one inch thick hand laid up below the waterline.
Bulkheads are well seated. As are the chain plates.
There are historical issues with the deck and it's coring with this model.
Unlikely but possible issue with the keel bolts. Only because of age.

Basically this is a hull with a mast and some standing rigging. All the parts needed to build a new boat.

All of the teak will likely be replaced

Polyurethane the deck
Scrub, sand and seal the hull and topsides
Rebuild and re-bed the winches, pully blocks and fairleads
All new lines and halyards.

About twelve grand for materials alone. And two years of hard labour.

A labour of love.

Time and money. I should have enough of either. If I weren't raising three children I wouldn't have a dilemma.

Received a note from a new member Friday. Tanzer 27.
I didn't see it until this morning.

He has one sail ready for sail.

Hope this one is the charm because I am ready.

This one is in Bellmore NY not far from the other two upon which I have hailed to close

Tread lightly.
Lotsa scammers on the boating forums answering want ads.
Well, I don't have a want ad but I do get your point. As of now this guy has not responded to my contact. However, if he does, nothing monetary happens long distance. It sounds like a road trip.

The phone contact was there but hidden. Here ya go Franc.
It does sound to good to be true ...or a typo on price
Let me know once you get the number and I'll delete this so his number is not out in the open.

This is a shoal draft. I wanted a fin keel. But at that price I'll be OK with the shoal draft.

One advantage with the shoal Keel is that the boat will be easier to transport on my flatbed

Congrats.
That is a crazy low price for a 27 ft boat.

Doc, this guy doesn't answer his phone either.
All I get is a chance to leave a voicemail

So, I joined a sailing forum and posted my story about the Tanzer in Sea Cliff Long Island. Turns out a guy knows the boat and the owner.
I'm trying not to get too excited but, the sale price dropped because the seller says, "he's not getting many inquiries."

Strange, very strange.

What? Are you just having fun with me?

That makes no sense.

Market price on this model is $5K to $8K.
His listing is at $6K dropped from $7K
