Did you buy this boat without a survey, sounds like it.
Were you active in the bottom appraisal and condition, scraping, painting?
I think you went to the yard, said "hey dudes I'm here". I don't believe you were educated enough to pay a professional for what you did not know but believed you did.
Got sticker shock from the people making an honest living and then freaked out. Not all yards are rip-offs.
Did you pay to replace the centerboard pennant?
