I'm sorry if I offended anyone. As I said it would be a fine project boat if someone wanted to do it for themselves not to sell for a profit. My wife calls me anal about the boat. Remember I made an offer on this boat 3+ years ago and checked it thoughly at that time. Little appears to have been done since that point. The bottom was barrier coated and the electronics installed approx. 5 years prior. If I were to purchase this boat I would haul it strip the bottom, remove the caprail and all fittings including the hausepipes, stanchion posts, portlights and probably the mast(if you are going to do this and hire someone to spray it you my as well do it all at once) Fill the hull deck joint replace the hausepipes with spunglass (see Fluid Motion) repair hull damage sand, sand,sand somemore. Pay someone to spray it after all this work you want it perfect. Then start to replace caprail, varnish, replace every thing you took off. Put cabin back together that you took apart to get to everything. Put new bowsprit stanchions, and lifelines check and/or replace rigging it's stressed and 10 years old(see whisker tang that was ripped through) You will have one of the nicest westsails around, but you still have a 30 year old volvo and 10 year old electronics. Do it all you've got a year in the yard,40 to 50,000 invested,2000 hrs. labor and a great boat worth 55 to 60000. But you've the pride of doing it PRICELESS

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
