At a glance, underpowered and ugly, and she hasn't been run much in six years, but Bad's probably got the scoop.

That is one very old JC I would est that boat at 1978 vintage. Cored hull, mostly 1 3/8 shafting. Plus back in the very early years some of the JC were made with steel fuel tanks, which were a big mistake. They weigh a ton plus there life span was not great. Putting all these things together is costly.

That and the keel/shoe is busted to shit, plated and bolted back together, the decks are a mess, the house is a mess and there were a few other glaring issues if I remember right. It pretty sure she had steel fuel tanks as well.

Looks real pretty in that specific pic though.

ETA it does have a John Deere in it.
