Well Nemesis, Falcon & Rhapsody teamed up but got outbid on eBay to buy KAOS. I stopped by at lunch time Weds and snapped a few pictures. They are shared on my Picasa album
with a select few here.
Brand new 3/4" shaft, but no prop
TSP number stamped on transom with spider web cracks indicate the transom is saturated and need to be recored
Open holes on aft cabin require recore work there. The companionway cover has about 3/4" gap with hatch boards allowing rain to enter the cabin. Significant water damage occured inside.
Standing water on teak deck. Water line evident inside up to settee level. A 2" hole has been drilled through hull in bilge sump to drain boat. The teak looks like it would need to be ripped out.
The rig looked ok, as did spars. There was a Hall quick vang below decks. It doesn't appear this boat has the spreader bar fix.
The culprit for wet core - there is a visible gap in the engine exhaust through hull. Evidence of wet core on stbd side below waterline, transom, and stbd side just fwd of transom to the deck level.
Stbd aft spider line cracks indicate wet core froze.
Stbd aft looking forward. Note that core has been crushed and the hull is deformed where the boat has been resting on the poppet.
