When is enough, enough?

This Grampian 26 has been sitting in a boatyard for the past 6 years. My friend encouraged me to take it off his hands so he can stop paying rent on it being there. Even if it was free, I might have overpaid. I post these pics as eventually I will need some guidance and advice. I am not a boatbuilder but I have built furniture using cherry and oak. I think I can do this. Plus, I live on the coast of Maine, I am obligated to find a way to get on the water without having to ask a friend to take me out.
Removing all the moldy cushions, and other debris that has been gathering mold and disintegrating, pumping out the water that was almost over the floorboard, its is now ready to be washed down with bleach water and other mildew and mold removal tactics. I have to remind myself to Keep It Simple, Stupid, dont over commit. Categorize projects into safety related and aesthetic related. Essential or optional.
Site would not let me post pics. I will look into it and post. Its a big project to reclaim this boat but I think its worth the effort.
Cheers!
