Re: advice on buying a boat that need work

I was using 20-25k as my baseline prices,
what is the general consensus on used sails? (my friend recommended, he said $200-300 for a used mainsail)
interior cushions: never would've guessed that much, good thing i asked.
cabinets seems to be okay... besides being partially under h2o, I stood on them to avoid the water,
standing rigging is good according to my hombre, looked to be of similar condition as his boat,
running rigging may be okay, did not notice,
engine is probably shot (right?)
I didn't notice and equipment, the compass is missing so probably everything else is too....
I want floating condo in the short run, and a boat to learn on longer term.
How much does disposal usually run, you know, just in case it comes to that.
