His first question to me was, "How are you going to be using the boat?"
He advised mildly and politely to get a different boat if I were planing any blue water sailing. Inland small lakes, he said it should be fine.

He also asked me why I wanted a CM?

That is not a easy answer. I do not know myself. I think some of it is cost, what other boat gives so much for so little invested? I doubt any Hunter 30's or Catalina 32's / with trailers, are selling for three and four grand.

But money is not the only reason I like CM's. I just like them. Some people love Desoto's or Buick's.
Find out tomorrow, Monday April 2nd, if she is a go, or a no. Cost? $200. He works for

I am the most concerned about delamation, and the diesel engine being bad.

Had a few surprises in this current sailboat, not wanting surprises again. Surprises is the potential hazzard that soured the northern gig. Getting too old to undo, redo, hunt for parts, figure what is missing, figure what is added, figure out what that is the way it is.

The guy was very nice on the telephone. He says the economy is very bad in the LA area and boats are for sale, cheep, everywhere. He suggested I snag a blue water capable boat, and take it back to Nebraska.

If the survey is a bad one, I may just do that.

Wise choice Gary, you would be taking a big gamble otherwise. But did you already buy the tires you mentioned for the trailer or just priced them?

Survey is in. Nothing bad to report on anything really.

He was concerned the boat might break in half on the way here if the load is not distruibuted correctly. Says the hull is a lot thinner than most 32' sailboats, and while it is heavy, not nearly as heavy as it should be.

My boat was built in 75, but stamped 76 Jan.

Engine not froze up. Missing an exhauset piece est cost $300

no blisters.

No dlamanation

Good steering.

Good rigging

nothing bad to say about the sails.

He spent 4 hours climbing over the boat.

Gave it a 4.5 out of 10. For a 40 year old boat, is that bad?

He was afraid of the keel bolts. However, I think the seller can show reciepts where they were replaced.

The tire place was trying to rip me off. The survey came back as good to great tires. One maybe should be used as a spare. Just left them a Google Review.
Being shipped right now. $1360

This photo taken TODAY by the truck driver, Alek. It is insured by the driver as well as my house insurance.

Should be here in a couple days.

I think we have heard the hull thickness song before. The Clippers are also about a third the overall weight of a typicall 32 foot boat. Still an honest concern when shipping I am sure.

So where does that leave you? Glad that it was generally a good report and ready to proceed toward purchase?
