Well, she kinda broke my heart! I knew she would need work, now I know how much... They glassed in the outboard well which I didn't like too much. I don't think the stern on these lend themselves to being very comfortable trying to steer an outboard. The hull is cracked from sitting in a cradle and freezing I would assume. The rudder is the same, cracked. The cabin floor is spongy from being wet and submerged in rain water. The deck is also cracked topside and is spongy and cracked below. This boat has been in a cradle for ten years. They have all the parts to put her back together plus additional new parts they've acquired. Her husbands health is failing so the project has to go. They're asking $900! It also comes with an old 4 stroke 10hp Honda outboard. What do you guys think??? My main problem is getting her moved...
I need some guidance guys, is this too good of a deal to pass up? Or is the damage done too much?
