I see a photo, but no survey results. I'd be interested in seeing those results as I am in the market for a similar boat.

Congratulations on your Jefferson! We love ours. This is an exciting time in your life. Have fun, and good luck, with the repairs and refitting. Making a new boat your own is one of the joys. Keep us posted on your progress and your travels.

The one item that stand outs glaringly on the survey is the LPG tank. You need to do more than move it to a "well ventilated area". It needs to be outside where any propane leak (it is heavier than air) will flow down and over the side of the boat.


Most installations use a propane locker designed for this purpose with a drain hole that must be directed overboard. Also install a pressure gauge and a solenoid valve at the tank with a switch at the galley to turn the propane on and off.


Disconnect and remove the LPG tank until this is done.

Yes, I know. We have pulled the tanks. We are having a new stove installed and an installer make sure the tanks are placed properly.

Congrats on the new purchase. I looked at it online when it was listed. Nice boat. I'm in the process of buying an 1987 CHB Royal Star 42 from a friend. It's almost the same layout and power specs. Your survey looks good with nothing major to report. I sure you'll have lots of things the you and the DW want to do to make it your own. That's half the fun. Enjoy!!

+1 on the propane tanks being moved. Make sure the tank is installed in a locker and done according to the ABYC recommendations. Good luck with your new baby.

Thanks again all for comments. As you may of noticed she is lacking electronics. I am in the search of Radar and a few other items. One thing I want to change is that the lower helm has no electronics. I would like to have both the upper and lower helm fully integrated.

Finally closed on boat and it is ours. I can't imaging how long it would take to close if we had a loan to buy the boat.

Anyway, the survey item repairs start Saturday. Going to do all the stuff that can be done before I have her hauled out for the shaft and sea cocks.

Filled her up and not too bad actually cost wise. I over estimated that expense but price goes up and I will be okay.

If all goes well I will have her ready to go by hurricane season.

I have a Khi Shing Vista 46. I have been scratching my head at what they knocked off to build it. This looks an awful lot like mine. We LOVE ours! Retiring to it is a bit down the road and trips are strictly Friday night until Sunday afternoon. Welcome to our community!

We have a Jefferson 45 that was built by Hershine in 95. Molds probably went everywhere.
