5 October, 2011 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

1978 Columbia 8.7 sloop powered by a Yanmar 15 diesel engine and with tiller steering. Two year old mainsail, 7 year old headsail on a Harken roller furling. Brand new New England Rope sta-set 9mm jib sheets (70 feet each), and 9mm main halyard (82 feet). Both batteries are new, house and starter. Brand new Racor primary fuel filter unit installed in November 2010. All interior cushions were just redone in November 2010. Brand new Raymarine ST60 series Autopilot installed in November 2010, which is linked to the Garmin 182C GPS/Chartplotter with colorscreen. Sale will also include an 8 foot AVON dinghy with a 2 horsepower outboard motor.

– headsail is pretty worn and should probably be replaced.
– bow pulpit is bent a bit to the starboard side, not enough to affect the headsail, but should be removed, straightened, and reinstalled.
– port side bow docking cleat is broken off, no damage to the deck or mounting screws, but will need to be replaced.
