I bought this boat for $650. I put about $3000 and countless man-hours into her and sold her for $900. If I had to do it all over again......I would in a heartbeat. This is the boat that started it all. She was essentially a worthless piece of junk that was falling apart and didn;t sail well even when she was brand new, but Lyric gave me an education in owning, fixing, maintaining, an sailing a boat. I worked on her every minute I could and learned more than any $3000 class could ever teach. Hopefully with all of the work that I did, she is still alive and making someone out there happy.
