About this Sailboat:
Original owner, approaching 70, lost interest, time to move on, but with difficulty after all of those years. Boat was used mostly in mid 70s to mid 80s in middle Chesapeake Bay, in the Solomons Island area north and south.
Overall the boat has been reliable and enjoyable over the years, even though little used after the mid -1980s. Because it is a 1974 boat, it does not have the bells and whistles of newer boats, but it has the basics with several additions and improvements. Because of the teak and other wood trim there is more maintenance that the all plastic newer boats. The owner should be comfortable with such maintenance and be a little handy, which ,by the way, is required on all boats. In my view, however, a boat needs to have good lines and good looks, and this one has both. Many newer boats that may have more bells and whistles, cannot make such a claim! As such, my boat is appropriately priced and available for a new owners enjoyment and adventure.
