You want to beef up the boat so that you can sail in waters for which it was not originally built? I get that.

I don't understand why you want to rip out and replace the entire liner. Our bulkheads and chain plates were reinforced by the PO without doing that.

Maybe it will all be a waste of time, but it's your time to waste and if you enjoy doing the work, who cares?

Some people like working on boats as much as sailing them. Nothing wrong with that. If no one liked to work on boats there would be more derelict boats out there.
