First, doing your basic research before doing any boat project is a must. That would have saved you a lot of time, money and labor.

Second, cheap boats are generally more expensive than anything but free boats. It usually costs far less to buy a boat in decent shape than it does to buy the same boat in rotten shape and refurbish it. That's kind of why I wrote my Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread, to help people save money when boat buying....

Third, there's a reason so many boats are light colors... Hides imperfections and dirt a lot better.

Fourth, punctuation, paragraph breaks and the like are good things... you might want to learn to use them.

Fifth, welcome to boat ownership...there are lots of places to shop that are far less expensive than West Marine.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
