Brokers Remarks
Full disclosure, In 1992 she was had a minor grounding in the Pacific Northwest.   When she was improperly pulled off, her skeg was damaged and she took on water..   While there was no damage to the hull, deck, mast or rigging, her wireing, machinery and electrical panels had to be replaced and the bulkheads refurbished.    In 2009 she suffered a lightning strike and was refitted by Global Marine in Ft. Lauderdale.   
She is a sturdy, well equipped bluewater cruising Ketch.   She will carry her new owners far and wide, safely.   Her owners are negotiable and looking for offers
