maintained, easy to sail, comfortable, trailerable, day sailor with
overnight accommodations for four. Always kept tarped/barned to
prevent sun fading on deck.

I probably forgot a few things but Saint Somewhere, named after the lyrics in a Jimmy Buffet song called "Boat Drinks", is a great boat which we have enjoyed owning.
Selling to buy a Sea Pearl Trimaran to keep at our covered dock on a canal off a lake in Citrus County Florida because Saint Somewhere is just too
big for the dock/canal/lake and its trees/25' high powerline that
divides the lake.
I am agreeable to demo sails on Henderson Lake, a local lake, for $100 (that way I don't have to wash/flush/rinse as much as salt water requires), which will be applied to the purchase price, if you buy the boat.
