Re: Refurbish or scrap?
I don't see any sign that the boat's had any work done at all. Part of what's attractive about it to me is that we can do the work from the ground up and know exactly what we're getting into. We could spend $3500 instead on a "light project" or $5,000 on a "ready to sail" only to find the same problems later and not have enough money to fix them.
That said; I think you're right. If there are multiple soft spots or any other significant structural issues, we'd be ahead to scrap it. There may be a few parts worth salvaging, and if we can get $0.40/lb for the keel that's $1,000 right there.
