    Ive been eyeing that very same boat for a longgggg time. It will be interesting to see what the guys here can dredge up. Ive been wondering the same questions myself but I am in no position right now for such a boat.

    If you purchase her, let us know. I would love a first hand look! I tried when I was over near there for thanksgiving but I ran out of time.

    I "helped" a friend build a Buc 40 in Key West in maybe the 80's?

    Sailed her many times, liked her a lot. Not roomy below but a nice all round fast Tri with good manners.

    I just looked the vessel up, that looks like a lot of boat for the price. One thing on my friends boat was termites in the crossarms, they are plywood and lumber even if the hulls are fiberglass / foam

    Surface area of the hull and sail area give the best idea of upkeep. No wing decks = less paint but big sail area increases rig and gear costs.
