This is a project boat that was damaged in Hurricane Ian. The vessel is offered as is, where is.
Here is the good and bad of it:

Standing rigging in good condition. All new halyards, never used. Mast has a small dent in it which is repairable. Schaefer Genoa furler in working condition. Staysail furler and inner forestay are gone. Boom is broken in half, but cleanly, so it could be sleeved, or the boatyard has one that will fit for $100. Bowsprit was wrecked in the storm, but we have made a new one which is 90% complete.
Genoa, drifter, storm trysail, and storm jib are all fine. Main has a small tear on the luff which is fixable. No staysail, the storm ate it. Dodger is intact but the windows are cloudy. There are several awnings, plus a complete winter cover which is very nice.
The rudder got a little chewed in the storm but is fixable (see pics). The cap rail and exterior woodwork are also damaged. We have the teak for the cap rail, it just needs to be shaped and installed. Various small dings and scratches. Stern needs a cosmetic repair and some fairing.
There is a working, pretty new chart plotter and a wheel pilot, both of which work.
I have removed the old head liner. The wiring, as is the case on many boats of this vintage, was a disaster, so I have pulled some of it out and left some runs which might be useful. There is one new deep cycle battery, and new bus bars for when it comes time to rewire. I have recovered a couple of cushions, and have the foam for the rest.
30 hp yanmar, which worked the last time the previous owner tried it. I have turned it over but not started it. Oil is uncontaminated. Transmission got some water in it but I have flushed it out with solvent. It turns by hand.
Cosmetically, she needs a coat of paint and a lot of teak oil, after the other repairs are done.
I’ve probably left some stuff out, but you get the picture. She could be a great boat for someone with the time to fix her.
