TLC needed and other notes:
· Generator needs water pump seal
· Two areas of “soft deck” one on port front of flybridge, another on starboard foredeck about 2/3rds forward.
· Bilge pumps / float switches should be replaced. Parts are on boat but not installed.
· One light switch on inside pilot console needs to be replaced (I think it’s the salon lights)
· Lock on sliding salon door works but is old and worn, should be replaced.
· Engine heat exchanger core needs to be removed and cleaned. Engine temperature rises when at full power.
· Batteries are 3 or more years old and will need replacement soon
· Need to be hauled, bottom and prop cleaned and bottom paint re-applied
· Toilet does not flush properly because there is a blockage in the piping from toilet to holding tank. Piping needs to be replaced. I have been unable to unclog this and I suspect there is calcium deposits that cannot be removed due to age of the tubing.
· Anchor rode is aging and should be replaced soon
The boat is currently in the water near Annapolis, MD, but is scheduled for haul out, cleaning and winter storage before the end of October.
I am no longer able to maintain or use the boat so I need to sell and am willing to sell as is for $25,000.
I believe the boat is very usable with minor repairs and maintenance. A few things need immediate attention, such as the generator water pump. Others are optional, but I noted them as I had them on my punch list.
