DJ and I inspected every nook and cranny - even putting a camera down to see the hard to access places, before making an offer. Later when we had a professional survey completed he didn't uncover any new information. We had a sea trial and she sails like a dream (at least my dream). She's stiff and solid, slow to heal, yet picks up speed quickly. We had her at 6 knots with full sail in a 15 knot wind, she was upright and steady with a nice motion. She probably won't win races, but then I was looking for a cruising boat anyway :-)
She has 3 cabins! My cabin is aft and has a large double sized quarter berth, a hanging locker, lots of shelves, and a fold down navigation table. It even has 2 opening ports (windows) and a hatch. Not much stowage under the berth as it contains the fuel tank. I even have a door!
The forward cabin (Coleen's) is a standard v-berth arrangement with a hanging locker. It also has 2 opening ports and a hatch - and it also has a door.
The main cabin (salon) has a u-shaped seating arrangement on the port side with a table, and a long settee on the starboard side (with a lee cloth it will be a good sea berth). There's lots of stowage & shelves and it has a hanging locker too.
I am so excited about the galley. It has a 3 burner propane stove with an oven and top loading refrigerator with a little freezer - with vertical ice cube trays.... yes no more hauling ice! It has a large deep single stainless steel sink with pressure water, and a fresh water foot pump too. (I'll need to add a salt water tap).
The cockpit is a bit roomy - actually too roomy for serious offshore (but we've got a plan to fix that). There are dinghy davits, a cockpit table, a bimini and a dodger. There are steps all the way up the mast (which I hope to never climb), and the mainsail and roller furling Genoa are both in good shape. (We are planning to install new heavier rigging, inspect all the chain plates, and add a trysail and a drifter.)
She has a large battery bank (6 golf carts) and has 2 solar panels (I'll add my two solar panels as well) and a wind generator with new blades. She also has a special alternator on the engine that we could use to charge the batteries if it's neither sunny or windy :-)
