Can anyone help a New Boat Owner ona custom Ketch?
That "custom ketch" sure caught you . . . must have been the new sail covers and fresh green paint above the waterline that sold you; there are no other redeeming values to the wreck.
In all due respect to your decision to buy this pile of rubble . . . what were you thinking girl? Go with the wise advise of the last few posters and try to give it back. I''ve spent more than $100 at the local marina bar in a night, buying rounds for my seamates. This will certainly require a second mortgage on your 1st residence to restore.
Chalk it up to a loss.
