Boat dreams

Piece of cake.
Here''s a thing to consider. Are you a good boat mechanic? Many great yachts are sitting
destined for the chain saw because the cost of fiberglass work is more than the cost of the boat. Spongy decks and cabin tops is the main culprit.
It''s not all that difficult to make the repairs and "yes I have done them"
Many and I do mean many nice boats are waiting. The owners pretty much have to take whatever you offer them.
A lot of boats start at the scrap price of the lead in the keels. I wouldn''t pay more.
There are gust too many boats.
WARNING DO NOT GET INTO A PROJECT SUCH AS THIS UNDER FUNDED Also do not be scared be informed.
