I couldn't begin to tell you all the steps but you have to get down to a firm foundation. I hope you got a good deal on the boat.
Deal wise I'm doing OK... bought it at auction for under a grand, hauled it home for under a grand...and have it rigged and readied to sail for just a little over a grand (lottsa work on my part)....So depending on what the bottom takes I'll be on the water well under 4...

I'm not looking for a 30 year repair or "investment"...

I want to do it "well" and reasonably economical for now...I don't think I'll be going down to glass and re gelcoating the bottom, I just want to get it faired, waterproofed, hard coated and back in the water...
