General condition and any additional information

Selling my Potter today with some regrets but Im moving into a Marshall Sandpiper as my wife and I are getting older and would prefer more open space. The Potter is loaded with brand new off shore triple stitched leather bound sails. I used them twice before I found the sandpiper and have turned my attention there. Custom cushions for cabin and cockpit, same color cover if you want to leave it out for an extended period, boom cover, brand new bilge pump, 2 anchors, paddle and some assorted goodies. Im a machinist and wood worker boater and made a custom mast holder for the tiller gudgeons. Also a custom release mechanism to drop the anchor off the bow from the cockpit. The boat has all custom made new closed cell foam insulation throughout , totally. Mast and hardware shows use but Iv had no issues and had her over to near 40 degrees in high winds. The boat is totally dry after heavy rain. The motor bracket is also fitted with blocks to run the motor properly on plane. Tried a new bottom paint as I was out of the dark green. The lighter paint if slick to the touch and has had the same effect as the old stuff. I have near the whole gallon left as well for you. The trailer is not registered, its old steel with tilt, new wheel bearings and lights. Everything works , thats the way I live. I have a 3.5 mercury motor Ill add in Iv used it flawlessly . The boat is ready to drop in and enjoy.
