should I or should'nt I?
I have seen a 30' steel ketch for sale, it has a lot of highly visible rust on the deck and hull, it would need to be taken out of the water, grit blasted and repainted and refouled, the current owner had a quote for this work at nearly Ł10,000, I cannot afford this but I might be able to find someone to do the work for maybe half that, would the finished boat be worth the expense?
I do not have the skills to do the work myself.
P.S the interior also needs a complete refit.
PPS. The boat is at least 35 years old.
