Re: Boat worth price?

Really at this level, the question is more philosophical than absolute...

Is it worth that much to you...? Is it going to need more work to be sailable and is the extra costs acceptable to you...?

Is there (are there) other boats that may need more work (that your willing to do) at a lower price..?

Or are you not interested in working on the boat and willing to pay more for a "ready to ride" boat...?

I'm handy.. I have the technology and the tools and am willing to put in the work.. So I bought a boat for $760 and am traveling, trailering, and sailing for about $4,000 total...You still gotta paint the bottom and fix the trailer before you can even go out...
