CONDITION:

I purchased the boat approximately 12 years ago, and within the first two years of ownership I completely went through her from stem to stern, inside and out, removing, replacing, updating, modifying, cleaning, painting, etc., and I saved almost all of the receipts. Since then I have sailed her less than a dozen times, mainly in the ICW and near shore, and therefore, she has received very little wear and tear after the initial overhaul. Simply due to exposure to the weather, however, I have replaced the main sail cover, dodger and bimini twice, and painted the deck three times. The last replacements, which also includes the GPS and all sailing instruments, were within the past 2 or 3 years. She was hauled out July 2016 for inspection, and the topsides were waxed and the prop and shaft were cleaned and painted (see photos).

Equipment: Main sail (traveler moved from cockpit to cabin roof), genoa, working jib, spinnaker and poles, tiller pilot, Lowrance GPS with transducer, ICOM transceiver, folding prop, 2 blade prop, Achilles dinghy with 2.5 hp Yamaha outboard motor, Mast Mate, electric pump for water, holding tank and macerator pump for toilet, cockpit cushions, life jackets, charts, spare parts, etc.
