I may just take a trip through northern Kansas to take a look at these two boats. Let me know what you think if you have the time. The plan is to go see boat #1 and if it is unsatisfactory take a look at boat #2. Both boats are apparently priced at $600. I'm tempted to see the one that is "ready to sail today" first, but it is 10 years older and has a less sturdy trailer (I will be making 5 hour drives with this boat).
Boat #1: 1981 model. Galvanized trailer looks to be in good shape. Current owner has not sailed this boat or ever had the sails out of the tube. He claims to have no idea what condition the sails are in. He won't state anything about the condition of the other parts either, saying he just doesn't know anything about sailboats or hobies, planned on learning but never had the time.http://lawrence.craigslist.org/boa/2926330715.html
Boat #2: 1971 model. Seller says trailer is hard on the eyes but fully functional and offers to pack wheel bearnings before I take it on the road. Boat was sailed as recently as last year and buyer claims it is ready to hit the water today. New Trampoline and paint.http://ksu.craigslist.org/boa/2986560685.html
