Thanks for the reply. Thats the exact reason for purchase, cruising with the family with the possibility of some offshore travel one day. The owner can supply a rigging survey, that should show any old gear I presume. However before going ahead we would be getting the hull surveyed as well. Im just apprehensive as it almost seems a bit to good to be true for the price. Also I dont want a big project. Im happy to have some costs as with any boat, but I dont want to be spending big money straight off the bat.
