I, too, have a NM 43 project boat

It's an '87 sitting on stands in Ft. Lauderdale. Purchased in October. I live on west coast of Mexico and am trucking the boat here end of Aug. This boat has no bulkheads, engine, galley, nada. The only thing still in the boat is the bathtub, but most of the sailing gear is there: rig, winches, chainplates, etc. I figure a year just to get her sailing, 2 years to cruise.

Also have an OI 33 that is in cruise-ready condition here in Mexico that I'll use for breaks. is offline
