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.
