If we have to put some money into her Im willing to do so. We go to pick her up on April 23rd in Ga, and are motoring down to Florida.
When did almost 10K become dirt cheap? Zounds.

More seriously, it does sound like a *lot* of money to spend on a boat without spending another 350-400 bucks on a survey. Especially since you are already looking at another $5K for a repair.

Not to tell you how to spend your money, but try to think of the survey as the first money you're willing to put into her. A few hundred bucks on a good surveyor may well prove one of the best investments you can make in a 43 year old boat.

It may be a hole in the water, but it's mine.
