  • This boat would be very easy to truck, as all the deck gear has been off and on the boat recently, so no issues with frozen fittings, etc.
  •  The owner just measured the boat, and based on the measurements, the boat is under 12’6” for bridge clearances. The bow & stern pulpits, deck stanchions, compass on binnacle, wheel, winches bodies (bases can remain), and dorade vents would need to be removed.
  • With the boat in this ownership for over two years, a new buyer would be prudent to replace the rigging as this owner does not have history on the rigging.
  • Her sails are serviceable, but since they are 1992’s, again, would be a good idea to replace the main and jib.
