If the boat has a nice head it has to be demolished to gain access to cut and remove the beam and then the rebuild the head woodwork again.

I am in the stainless fabrication industry and all my parts were done on the running around and having friends save there scraps for me to keep the cost at ZERO

I cant see the boat working out from a financial standpoint if you have to pay yard rates as its easily a 5000 dollar job and I would find it hard to believe a yard would be set up to change Cal 29 mast steps efficiently

The boats value tops out in the 20000 range as they were inexpressive boats and I found they all had very poor upkeep

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
