I have been fixated on the largest of the Santego's - the 3867.
The one that I like is the one with all the wood inside and the large galley island.
I went to look at this one and even put in an offer.
The engine bay scares the hell out of me! Not sure whats up with all the rust and paint cracking on the 454's, but I see dollar signs flying out of my bank account. Maybe the paint cracking is common?
There was also some bad mildew on the carpeting surrounding the stateroom windows (portholes?) that was concerning.
I like the boat though. Does anyone have experience with these?

As to the rust in the engine compartment I only saw a little bit in the pics you posted. What I saw would not bother me. If there is more unseen then it needs to be checked out.
Obviously if you decide to make an offer to purchase it would be dependent upon a successful survey and sea trial.
What you posted does not look that bad. It's a nice looking boat.

So assuming that is rectified this week, I take possession on the weekend!
