value of a later model Squall

I just looked at a later model Squall sailboat. It appears to be in good to very good condition with original sail and mast, centerboard, rudder, and thwart. Basically it seems to only need a good buffing. I might actually get a kick out of learning to sail around a little. The owner is asking $600 (US). Is this more or less market value? Or should I just stick the money into my repower jar for my project boat (a 22 OR Cuddy/WD that NEEDS motors)?
Thanks in advance for any opinions or suggestions!

I think that price is in the ball park. I bought a mint 1973 for about $400.00. Later that day the seller got an offer for $700.00.He offered to split the profit with me, but I declined The asking price was $450.00.
If you do buy it I have some rigging instructions that I can send you.

That is a good deal @ $600. I see nice ones going for $1200 on E-Bay with all the rigging.
Need a like-new 6hp 4 stroke?

I bought a Squall last year with all the sailing gear for $250. I intend to resote it which will involve Awlgrip paint for the hull and a new sail. When I'm done I'll likley have $1,000 into the boat with most of the cost going toward having a new sail made. If the sail on the boat you are looking at is usable I'd say the price they are asking for the boat is very fair.

It is a good deal I've seen them go for 1000 and up, and if you have everything with the deal that is a plus. Just remember to kept the center board down, the boat has a round bottom and will roll easy...good luck

Thanks all. I tried searching ebay and craigslist and could only find a couple of original Squalls. I guess today's paycheck gets me yet another whaler I need to find room for!

I have been hunting for a Squall for over a year, your price is good. If the hull and wood are in good shape and
The hardware is all there, $600 is a good deal
I would love to see your rigging instructions.
Please let me know what you would like me to do to get a copy.
