...30 years ago I spent about $500 building a trailer and hauling my Hunter 27 home. Rebuilt the entire insides working a couple hours each night after dinner. Painted the decks, built new bow and stern pulpits. Got the bottom done before launching, and spent not a nickel in yard fees during the off season. Really should have done it that way again. But who knew?
That's the way I'm doing mine ...for the same reasons...a couple hours in the back yard here and there and it's getting done...and I ain't paying for it to "sit" when I'm not there...
On the other hand, I have a farm and a large barn to keep it in...not a driveway in a crowded neighborhood..
