My boat is currently in the Hudson River 30 mi north of New York City - In Haverstraw New York. The boat is a 1981 and is mechanically sound. We updated the elctronics a couple of years back. It has radar, weatherfax, two VHF radios, Icom SSB, autopilot, watermaker, genset etc. The Perkins diesel has approx 2500 hrs so there are many more left. The genset engine was rebuilt 20hrs ago. The sails are usable for more seasons, but are not recent. If you e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if will send you my phone number so that we may talk.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
