Information On Condition

She is in very good condition and alot of work was already done! The center cockpit deck is delaminated and needs to be repaired. Cockpit needs to be re-fiberglassed. That is the reason why the seller does not use The Mizen. The Mizen rests on a compression post through the deck of the cockpit. The compression post has been replaced. That is the worst part about the boat, the one thing the seller has not repaired yet.

Solar system has two panels one of them still needs to be installed. It has a new controller for the solar system and a four battery battery Bank with one spare one sitting to the side. All the batteries are less than a year old. Frame for the dodger and Bimini is there the dodger needs to be rebuilt there is canvas material for the dodger and Bimini.

The bottom has been painted within the last 2 months. New zinc installed and also prop cleaned. For navigation there are many charts on board, and also a brand new hummingbird Helix 7 chart plotter.
