    Notes: Boat is on trailer in our backyard next to our workshop. Delivery available or you can haul it home. Beam of boat is within a few inches of road legal 8'6" so we traveled without special permit as haulers normally do in this situation. Current title and registration. Arrangement can be made to keep boat stored here on monthly basis and I can be hired to complete certain jobs or consult as needed on jobs you want to do yourself. Boat can be purchased without trailer, but trailer not available separately unless boat gets sold first without trailer. Here's a good opportunity to finish fitting out a classic bluewater capable cruiser to your own requirements.

    Alison Thanks for the listing. Please remove the ad from the active list, the boat is sold.
