Looking for Fixer upper Cruising Sailboat

Be careful of project boats. I met a man with a hurricane boat that he got real cheap. The mast was laying on the deck covered with blue tarps and assorted trash. I almost fell off the dock when he told me that he had been working on the boat almost every weekend for five years!!!!! I think that unless you just enjoy sniffing fiberglass most of us would be better off getting a second job or working overtime and saving the money to buy a boat. He was tied to a dock so with 5 years at 100+/month that''s $6000.00 in slip fees!!!! After five years the diesel was probably in poor condition. I didn''t have the heart to ask what he paid for his great deal.
