(This ad will terminate on 13-2-2018 due to expiration of one year limit. Seems boat will not sell by then. In July 2018 boat will be on the hard at Yamba Marina for antifoul, topsides polish and hopefully rectification of mast electrics. Anyone potentially interested may ring phone no attached to this ad in late June 2018 to discuss view of the boat out of the water).

Headroom 5'10". Antifouled July 2016. Topsides cut and polished July 2016. Vessel named "Sea Sharp".
A remaining defect is lights up mast (steaming and masthead) not working - have been told by a marine electrician that wiring through bilge to mast base needs replacement. In addition bilge wiring and mast wiring presently detached at mast base (see photo). I do not intend to fix this before sale. A solar rail light on board can be used as a white light for night anchoring. Navigation lights and interior lights are all working.
This boat is 29 years old and is not perfect. However I believe it to be well above average for this model. An impression in transom gelcoat reads - - I take it this is self explanatory.
If a survey is required I am prepared to deliver the boat to Yamba Marina for that purpose. I am prepared to assist a new owner to deliver the boat as far north as Gold Coast Seaway or as far south as Coffs if a handheld GPS/chartplotter is supplied (am now told that a smart phone app can do this job). I can deliver the boat to Ballina or Yamba/Iluka without that device.
A photo displaying the boom furling mechanism near mast base shows blotchyness in mast surface - this caused by loss of white paint (spars originally painted) not corrosion.
