There she is...

Needs more work than I was led on to believe, but I'm not worried. I've got all the time in the world to fix her up.

Ship like this, be with you till the day you die.

She may not look like much, but try to see around that. Try to see past what she IS, and on to what she CAN be.

I know it'd probably be cheaper to just buy a Buccaneer outright than try and repair this one (the inside is totally trashed-will have to rebuild every bit of cabinet, furniture, berthing, the works), and some of you may even think it's not worth it.

But she's mine. Free and clear, she's mine. And she floats like a dream. I could slap an outboard on her tomorrow, and cruise around the lake with no worries.

I will be posting pictures in the relevant forum as the process goes-it's going to be slow, aye, because I've not much spare time, but it's perfect for me.

And I guess now that I HAVE a boat, I'm a full member?
