"...As Marty commented, she looks to be in great condition, with dual thrusters; maybe an 8 or even 9.(never seen or heard of a 10)
Point is, she has been lovingly cared for and invested in. Very hard to believe that the ER does not look the same - probably could eat and sleep there. I would be shocked, shocked if that is not the case.

Another personal rationalization for pursuing this Acapulco is what is often stated in this forum - buy condition! You will not regret it."

I think BUY condition makes such a difference. When a boat has been a mainened with cost not being an issue, every dollar the PO spent, is a dollar you will not have to spend.

When our KK42 came on the market, it was one of the highest priced east coast boats. But as we looked and looked, it became apparent that it was well worth the extra money.

In hindsight and after 7,000 nm and 2100 hours, that decision looks even better.

All the money we have spent on Dauntless went to either fuel or things I wanted to add. There has been no significant breakage or anything, parts, hoses, that need to be replaced.
