Information On Condition

Lots of spare parts for the boat. Standing rigging appears in great shape but the owner doesn't know the age.

Cushions need help but will get you through, abundant new parts and spares, all records since 1979 and manuals.

Needs a little TLC but appears mechanically sound.
