Re: Purchasing Sunken boats

If we understand the damage correctly, it is probably not worth the effort. I repainted the bottom, topsides, and deck on my C22. I would estimate it cost less than $500 in supplies. I probably put $1500 into the boat and sold it after 5 years for what I paid for it. That is why is is usually most cost effective to purchase a boat as close to the condition you want. If you just want a project, go for it.
