Re: Aloa 34 (1974) available for "salvage"

Wake, I think that's already been discussed. A lot of it depends on how you perform repairs.

Damage to the hull? Oh, maybe two grand if you like to paint and have free storage. Maybe 15-20 grand if you give it to a yard. All depends on what and how you plan to "repair" things. DIY is sometimes pretty hard to do in the NY metro area, so you may first have to have the boat trucked off to a DIY yard, or repair/replace the engine to get it there. Repair? Maybe it just needs to be unstuck, maybe it needs to be replaced. Maybe that's two grand if you can find one from a junkyard, maybe it is 15k if you have to have a new one installed.

But if you've got a backyard and lots of time, the costs really come down.

How long is a piece of string, anyway?

It is difficult to judge based on exterior photos only. Fiberglass repair is not that complex or expensive if you are willing to do the work yourself - see Don Casey's "This Old Boat" - but structural damage would be an entirely different matter.

Go for it! There is quite a bit of good info on line about how to revitalize a boat, especially the motor that took water. But always it is about getting to it quickly. Good luck.

Hello Everyone,
Sorry for the delay in replying I am out of town.
The 1st person who was going to take the boat kept on postponing and then stopped replying. So I had to finalize the Insurance money.
Th insurance company has the boat, it is going to be picked up by a salvage company and auctioned.
if you iwsh to bid on the boat here is the info.

Small world.
did whoever sold you the boat tell you that it had been "totaled" by insurance?
In hurricane Sandy?
