General condition and any additional information

Love this boat but my finances are dwindling. I have been in 8 to 15 ft seas bucking the waves, no problem. Anchored in 55-knot storm, still here to tell about it. Have sailed single handed from Fort Myers to New Orleans, no big deal. Been knocked down, just popped back up, and kept on going. This is a very solid blue water boat that will bring you home. The flooring solid wood not plywood. All the rigging is heavy duty and made to last.
