One very important caveat with an older boat like this: if it should be totalled, insurance won't pay the full replacement cost (our $135) because there are other similar hulls on the market for the $50 we paid ... we have an agreed value policy that partly, but does not completely, acknowledge the cost of the upgrades.

The refit took about 2 years and we did a lot of it ourselves so we'd know every inch. More later.
Eryka... I too would be interested in your boat and any additional details you would be willing to share.. I like the idea of doing to reno on a older boat.
