    Welcome to the forum.

    My first reaction is to tell you to run directly away from this old puppy. She's been 'glassed on the bottom, likely with polyester and I see lots of "issues", so unless you have exceptional old boat skills, you're best advised to let this old Connie find someone else.

    It's a Constellation,double layered mahogany.

    Don't recall seeing one quite like that-perhaps post on a CC forum...let us know,be interesting to hear.

    Good luck.

    That is a massive restoration. Take plenty of pictures if you throw common sense to the wind.

    There was one at my marina for years and the asking price kept going down. It was finally sold for a couple thousand dollars and I haven't seen it since. It's hard to overestimate the money and energy these restorations take.
