Re: Full refit or Partial

Presumably before you boght the boat you looked it over well enough to have at least a rough idea of what was going to need refitting and what was good enough to leave alone. Now, I wouldn't leave the next day on an ocean crossing, but after sailing the boat for a year or so and fixing up the big things on the list, as well as what I found that I had overlooked, I think I would be comfortable that the boat was sound and that I knew enough about it to have a realistic opinion.
To answer your question, it seems that the price you offered for the boat when you bought it should reflect the amout of refitting you expected to do, so aside from your own time and labor it should about even out.
