Re: Lash Me To The Mast Before I Buy A Boat!
Aura is a beautiful boat. Looking through the listing the previous owner put a LOT of work into her (mostly done by yards). The bulkheads are a big job, but do-able if you read up on it in advance and practice on a couple of small epoxy jobs first to learn about using epoxy and glass mat.
It comes down to how comfortable you are tackling something like this. If you are I'd say go for it.
That said epoxy fumes are no joke. Make sure you have fans going and the boat is well ventilated.
I'm guessing you've pretty much decided buy her. This is NOT the place to come to get talked out of buying a boat.
Best of luck with her,
