New Members Looking at OA 42 Sedan

My wife and I poked around our first OA 42 Sedan and we like the layout and think it will suit us fine.

Currently we have a Seasport and we will be putting it up for sale and looking forward for any advice you may all have. In the mean time I do have a 21' Zodiac Hurricane to ease my wanting to be on the water.

We looked at an 86' that appears to have the original black iron tanks. In my mind these will need to be replaced along with having both engines looked at.

My wife like the boat, but I have some reservations.

Thank you,

Welcome aboard. The tanks may last a long time or they may start leaking tomorrow. Look them over closely. If there arenít any signs of rust then they may be fine.

Who knew with the pandemic and with the limited number of boats available it would be hard to find the right OA. So we settled on a 44' Tollycraft that we made and offer on and it was accepted.

So, if the survey goes through okay we plan to do some renovation in the next couple of months and store it in Anacortes or possibly in Olympia. But we would like to store in on the hard.

The plan is take things slow and cruise around under 10 knots most of the time.
