I'm not looking to restore the boat to the point where it's looks like a brand new boat. And I'm not trying to upgrade it to race ready condition or for long haul cruising. I just want to put a little lipstick on the pig so to speak and keep it sail-able and seaworthy mostly for Fair weather Chesapeake Bay pleasure sailing and the occasional overnight to St Michaels, Oxford, etc.
I figure I'll keep it for a few years, and then take whatever I can get out of it to use as a down payment on my next boat.
Doesn't that seem like a reasonable expectation?
