Hold the Chain saw

Hold that Chain saw. Not everybody thinks just because it needs work and is not the best of what new you should trash it.
I got and old truck that most people think is worth less. But it's paid for and works for me.
If you want to learn about boat repairs you got to start somewhere. If you keep it simple do some research and take your time, you can learn a lot. It will be work and Jeff's right it be a nonprofit rebuild. But if you smart and watch your money. You can clean her up, paint her up, and get her in the water next spring so you can go sailing. If you like the way she sails you can do more as time goes on. Think twice about ripping apart the deck to fix a soft spot unless it is unsafe. The big questions are, what is a must do and what is like to have. Must do's are all about is it safe and will it sail this way.
