Very nice boat!
Should have caught me a few years ago.

What do you think of OA Quality and Ruggedness in general?

Would you bring her down the coast on her own bottom?

Thanks Delta Jim,
I've owned the boat 10+ years and have been happy with the ruggedness. Can't say that I've had to test it much, but in general, the hull and stringers appear to be done well, no issues. Stainless hardware is all holding up well. The beefy steel engine bed that mounts to the stringers was one thing that impressed me up front.
I'm sure she could cruise down the coast just fine, not that I'd ever had a desire to try. She originally came up from the bay area 20 years ago or so, on a trailer.

Still for sale? I'm in Tacoma, Wa looking for a live-aboard for my young, growing family. In your honest opinion would this be a good choice for us? We're hoping to cruise alot of the south sound and make the occasional trip to the San Juans.

Thanks,

Great looking boat and appears to very well cared for, is this model one of the U.S. built ones?
As we are considering changing from sail to motor a consideration for us Canadians buying a boat anywhere is not only the exchange rate on the dollar but also duty on non U.S. built boats.

GLW sale Max.

Noticed that your user information is from the US but the vessel is located in Canada.

Does this vessel hold a US or Canadian registration?
