That's why I'm a little hesitant about the deal. It seems like the current owner might kick in some monetary help to make it a little easier, and he's already paying the marina to haul it out, scrape down the bottom, and replace some through-hulls. We'll still need to paint it inside and out.

Our tentative plan is just to go down there and look at it, and then make the final decision.

Thanks all for your thoughts.
