tidal9 is on a distinguished road
Thank you all for your replies. Upon further negotiating, I got this down to $800. I'm picking her up tomorrow if all goes well and taking her to storage until spring. After having my Buccaneer for a few years prior, and talking to any other sailor around here, I pretty much figure all boats are an on going project unless they are new-leased. Like my father says, "it's like standing at the end of a dock and throwing money into the water". I know I will put money and a ton of time into this thing. I did the same with my Bucc. But after it's all over, I will have picked up some other skills, I will know this boat much better, and it will be a boat built for me and my tastes. I can find a nice boat for the same price invested, but probably not my boat.
