Does that cost sound about right if you were to have a reputable yard do the work?

The pics look great. The bio looks pretty good. I could buy the boat today, for what it's priced at, but it would still need the chainplates replaced and probably some other work.
Julie,

If this is an S-34 MkI these chain plates could not be easier... Don't let anyone BS you... Straight bar stock bolted to bulkheads... Undo the nuts/bolts & pull free. Take the old ones to a machine shop and have them duplicated..
