**NOTE** An out of water survey in July 18 showed there were many small blisters on the fibreglass hull. The surveyor did say the ones he tested were not deep and did not have the acidic smell associated with severe osmosis. We have not done anything with this. WE DO NOT HAVE THIS SURVEY AS IT WAS LOST DURING A MOVE. We had a quote of $6000 for the local expert to completely sandblast and redo the entire hull. He also said that if we did some of the work ourselves we could get this price down substantially. At some point it will need doing and a buyer should allow for this. It would however be possible to grind back and fill the blisters if buyer did not want to redo the entire hull as above. WE USE HER REGULARLY AND SHE WILL SAIL ANYWHERE WITHIN REASON.


WE HAVE PRICED THE BOAT TO ALLOW FOR THIS WORK AND A POSSIBLE REPOWER IN THE FUTURE AND THE PRICE IS FIRM. WE ARE NOT IN A GREAT RUSH TO SELL.
I BELIEVE THAT A BUYER WILL GET MOST IF NOT ALL OF THEIR MONEY BACK IN 5 OR EVEN 10 YEARS IF THEY TAKE CARE OF HER AND SELL HER THEN.
THE MARINA BERTH AT MOOLOOLABA IS AVAILABLE TO TAKE OVER AT PRESENT SHOULD A BUYER CHOOSE. POSSIBLE LIVEABOARD BUT MAKE YOUR OWN ENQUIRIES.

WE ARE IN NO HURRY TO SELL - GENUINE ENQUIRIES AND PHONE CALLS ONLY PLEASE.
