I mean, really, WOW!

My first thought was "this is a great example of what happens when Home Depot advises someone on how to renovate a boat."

My second thought was "Jane, get me off this crazy thing."

However, I do think BLJ's got a valid point. If your expectations are not too great, this may be a fit for you -- if (and that's a huge, Nimitz class if) the survey finds it to be relatively seaworthy.

Without doubt, there's a ton of work and money that'll need to be invested to make her right.
