I like the idea of a good project but what really scares me here is that he has had standing water in the salon due to an open hatch and missing vent covers. The floor is made of plywood which can easily be ripped out and replaced. I am just worried I may get in over my head. I carefully inspected all the sails and it has good Main, Jib, Working Jib, and Spinnaker. PLUS he has a brand new main never used!! This is my first sailboat and I just don't want to get in over my head. I completely painted the hull of one of my current boats (1987 Thompson) in a few days and it came out pretty good (roll and tip).

I am not afraid of any project I just know I want to be sailing in a few weeks and don't want to get in over my head. I am pretty much on my own with this project.
