In 13 years as owner engines have never needed major work (rebuilt prior to 2000) - just tune ups since then.
I have never pushed them beyond 3500 RPM.
At that speed she is planing and achieves 20 Knots via GPS
Berths for six , but thats ridiculous.
Two adults and a child is reasonable ----- plus day guests
Stripped and repainted professionally with Awlgrip in 2006
Always stored indoors and serviced by trained marine mechanics
I change the oil myself :-)
In need of fresh canvas -----
some wood being replaced this winter -- very minor.
An insurance survey will be performed in spring/ summer 2014
Open to realistic offers, do not expect to recoup purchase price and investment since purchase in 2000
I have many pics , including shop work completed and online videos
