I have recently purchased this boat in March 2017 wanting to get into sailing and learn about boat ownership, but my plans have changed, and I am now planning on moving to Hawaii this winter.

This is a great little boat for a motivated buyer. I have already put a fair amount of time, money, and effort into making this vessel a 'turn key' beaut of a sailboat, as well as moving it to a more economically friendly marina then where I originally acquired it. She has a little bit more to go to be 100%, but I have done much of the leg work already, and it is in a really good spot for anyone looking to get into sailing. I am somewhat firm on the price being that I have put a fair amount into this boat already to get her fixed up, but would be willing to sell her to the right person for the right price. This boat is perfect for day trips in the San Pablo Bay, up the delta or even multi day trips to Sausalito or the South Bay. Again it would make for a perfect starter boat for anyone who has been meaning to get into sailing or would like a solid boat that can be enjoyed for years.

I recently had the mainsail repaired, as well as the Johnson 9.9hp Evinrude, which my mechanic has assured me will last a lifetime with yearly servicing/ maintenance.

The boat has a swing keel which is perfect for shallow waters as it can be winched up into the hull, and you can run the boat aground, get out to explore land, and wait for the tide to come back in.

It can sleep two people very comfortably and up to six people if you really needed to, but the cabin and the boat have plenty of space for two to three or even four people on a multiday trip.

I had an in water survey done in April for marina applications which came back good, but for the longevity of the boat it may be wise to have it pulled out of the water cleaned and inspected. Otherwise the hull is sound to the best of my knowledge, and the bilges are bone dry.

That said the only other things that need to be tended to to have this great little bay sailor in tip top shape are as follows:
- I have removed the current motor mount which needs to be repaired or replaced and reattached to the transom.
- The will have to be lowered and rigging adjusted and halyards replaced.
- The boat needs to be rewired, it can be done by a strong willed do it yourselfer or would maybe be a 1-3 hour job for a marine electrician, but that's it! (also I do have two in depth books I purchased for the care of this boat one on marine electrical manual, and a mechanical/ electrical manual, as well as the outboard's service manual.)

The current slip the boat is in is transferable with the title and insurance in your name. The slip fees are $144 a month with two overnight stays allowed per week. The Marina is walking distance to beautiful downtown Martinez, parks, and an Amtrak train station which allows car free access to all that San Francisco has to offer.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or if you are interested in seeing the boat. Serious inquiries only, thank you for reading this, I look forward to your interest in this cool little boat.
