Your worn out and/or broken auxillary diesel or gas ICE engine could be part of my solution.
If you own a good, used 28-35' (1990-) sailboat, draft <= 4'6", with walk through transom, without a working aux engine, we should talk.
I am planning to install electric motor, so I am less interested in sailboat with good working engine, or current owner installing or repairing existing ICE engine.
Not looking for a project boat, so I expect the interior to be in good condition.
I am willing to repair/replace standing/running rigging and sails.
I am willing to remove the existing engine.
I am willing to pay fair value ($20-30k USD) for a good used sailboat without working ICE.
I will consider any boat with easy access to Great Lakes, Eastern Seaboard, or Gulf Coast.
