      The mast on the 30 is deck stepped. the thing to look for is any deformation in the cabin top indicating that the mast is creating a sag. look for staining on the interior of the hull indicating that there are leaks from the hull/deck bolts. Cabin top sag is a serious (deal breaker) problem, but tightening or replacing the bolts is not that bad.

      Have the mast pulled and the mast step inspected. Mast step rot is a common deficiency in older Sabres due to the failure to provide a secure drainage path from water that gets inside the mast.

      I am having a prepurchase survey and sea trial done on a 1986 Sabre 30. Any areas of concern that I or the surveyor should make sure to look at?

      Thanks in advance.
