Ian, congratulations on getting it done. It would have been a shame to let that one get away. She looks like a great boat. We will look for you on the Bay.

They say that the condition of the engine room is indicative of the rest of the boat and systems, etc. The photo of the engine room is a survey stopper! Congratulations!

My goodness! I hope your surveyor boiled his shoes for twenty minutes before stepping foot into the engine room. Very impressive sir!

The varnish looks great, make sure that you keep it up, look carefully for scratches, breaks or points where water can get in like at a seam. It is so very, very much easier to take care of it while it is in good condition than if you get bad spots that later need to be stripped to bare wood.
Bill Gladding just surveyed one of my listings a few weeks ago, he knows what he is doing.

Clean, nice ER and well laid out. Sounds like a great start to ownership!

Thanks for the kind words, all. We're pretty stoked. For those worried about us working too hard, we spent 8 years restoring a large turn-of-the-19th-century house (in Fort Wood, Don). Starting with something in good shape is a lot more appealing.

Well done Ian! DeFever 44 is one of the boats on our short list should we decide to move up.

Nice boat!

What are those things that appear to be attached to the valve covers? Some kind of valve cover vent filters or something? Where do the hoses lead?

My understanding is that the current owner (who is obviously a cleanliness Ninja) added some air compressor filters to deal with oil drip/mist from blowby. I really don't know why he thought they were necessary since the engine surveyor we used detected little to no blowby.

Yo, angus - You mean PO don't you?? As you are current owner! Are you cleanliness Ninja also - LOL!! Should be easy to keep that baby pristine, as that's how you're starting out... already looks better than new! Enjoy the heck out of years aboard and abroad! - Art

Thanks, Art. Technically, he's the current owner until next week.
