Re: Construction questions for a Ranger 26

My first reaction is that it sounds like a tremendous amount of work and quite a bit of expense. Some of the stuff is trival, but some not. The bulkheads would be a big issue and I wonder if the deck and hull have been compromised by the bulkhead problems. Also corroded keel bolts could be nothing (cosmetic only) or quite serious and very difficult to fix. You could find a knowledgeable person to look at the boat with you, but my reaction from your description is that free would be too high a price for this boat.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
