  1. Well as the boat was purchased 3 months ago and about to set sail sometime around October 23rd after some heavy refurbishment it would be nice to hear an update.

  3. Offer half the asking price. Your gonna need a lot of money for that Money pit. Taiwan boats are not well engineered. Your goona discover some soggy core somewhere.

  5. never ceases to amaze me how salemanship declines as the price increases. All it would have taken is to properly stow those sails or at least hoist them and check before the client shows up. I would have walked on that broker right then and there. If he wont take the time to check the basics over before a trial – its the tip of the iceberg.

  13. Congratulations Bobby and Laura on your purchase, she looks beautiful. Can't believe someone copied my tool for the capstan that goes into the right-angled Milwaukee that makes hoisting by your self a dream, even for pulling someone else up the mast. God bless and loved the boat tour – it was great.

  18. The sound of those pulley's and bearings is concerning it seems. I know those are heavy but there are bearings grinding somewhere, you can hear it in the video!

  19. Bobby does all the work and keeps the boat afloat, while Laura sunbathe and shows off. Laura's gotten to go places that most people just Dream of. Her leaving seems like a spoiled child.

  20. A 1989 CT 56 runs around $150,000 to $170,000 in the current market. Judging from the condition of Bobby's new purchase and knowing his negotiating abilities with a broker that had a yacht sitting in a dock for two years, I can bet that the price went quite down towards the $100,000. This is the kind of boat I used to sail back in the 80s and all I can say is that they are heavy, quite seaworthy and good at ocean crossing. Apart from new sails, a probable engine overhaul and new electronics, it looks like a great cosmetics project that can be tackled on while cruising. Maybe that is why Laura is back, for the sanding, painting and varnishing. Maybe I am "age" prejudiced but I find this boat beautiful.

  21. Find yourself someone knowledgeable to go through this with a fine tooth comb. A broker has every reason to NOT point out issues.
