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.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
