I guess using the word "investment" was a bad choice...
We have owned many smaller sailboats like a Oday 27, Pearson 26, Ranger 22, etc... We refit the Oday and was fell in love with her but sold her to start a family.

We unfortuanately know the time required to work on a older sailboat (Formula for calculating hours required to work on a sailboat: A = what you it will take, B = 1.75 factor; difficult / problems / didn't go as per plan, C = 1.5 factor; weather / heat / cold / rain and D = actual hours work performed, Thus... A x B (C) = D, this weekend A = 4 hrs x 1.75 (1.5 (it was 95 degrees) = 10.5 actual hours) You can use this formula on the cost too....
