If you're not a sailor, get rid of the boat... if you've never tried sailing, try it before getting rid of the boat...since you might actually be one...and just not know it. Restoring a boat is a labor of love, as is owning one.

If you don't love the boat, don't even bother trying to restore it... all you'll do is botch the restoration and make it that much harder for someone who will love the boat to fix her.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
