    Additional photos of boat available

    Boat is on a mooring at Kingman Yacht Center Marina, Cataumet, MA 02534

    I can send a copy surveyor's report dated 11/17/17 along with a link to his photographs upon request.

    Additional Engine Notes:

  • The outboard works great. The motor is a long shaft, electric start and remote control. It is a 9.9 horsepower. It does not have power trim. It had a new carburetor installed in May 2018. The motor is set up to recharge both house batteries and does this exceptionally well. The outboard's pivot tube is rusted on the starboard side (shown in surveyor's photographs). I consulted with my marina mechanic. He said the tube does not need to be replaced but should be wire brushed, primed and painted. The prior owner had the motor serviced by his yard every season. I also had his yard service the motor and change the external fuel/water separator filter this past spring.

    Known issues

  • My 2017 survey identified an area of elevated moisture on the cabin top (see surveyor's photographs). This location had also been noted in the prior owner's 2014 survey. I was told this is not a big issue and I should leave it alone and just monitor it. The AC electrical wiring was installed using insulated solid copper wire. Solid copper wire is not approved for use on a boat (noted on last 2 surveys). A stanchion on the starboard side, just forward of the lifeline gate needs to be rebedded. There is also a leak into the cabin at the companionway threshold, starboard side. Waste hoses to and from the holding tank should be replaced. There is a build up of bottom paint that is flaking. I scraped the bottom before the yard applied a new coat of ablative paint in May 2018. The lifelines should be replaced. There are some screw holes in the cockpit area that were filled but never faired out.

    Now some positives: The boat sails great. It doesn't take much wind to make it move right along and I've had it out at 20 knots and choppy water for a really fun sail. There is a drop down table in the cabin that makes spacious sleeping accommodations for 2 as well as another double bunk aft under the cockpit.

    Extra items:

  • 22 Delta anchor with 30 feet of chain and new 3/8" rode. 4 fenders. 2 winch handles.

    Boat background

  • I purchased this boat in November of 2017 and have been sailing it regularly this season. My wife is not comfortable being back on the water after an 8 year break so I've put aside my cruising plans and decided to occupy myself with other pursuits. The previous owner purchased the boat in January 2014 and also sailed in the Cape Cod area.
