A year ago I bought a Catalina 30 for $4300. It's my first boat and I wanted a project so that I could learn as much as possible. So far it has cost me THOUSANDS. I'm not sure how many...and don't want to know. I do believe it is no where near the $20000 you mentioned though.

The only things that matter to me are how much I've learned and the pride I get from a job well done.

I would say that it is possible to for $20000...but you have to do ALL the work yourself.

New rigging for Catalina 30

I'm having the rigging inspected on my 1979 Catalina 30 on Tues. IF she needs new standing rigging, what would be a guideline of cost?

Less than 2k if you do it yourself including turnbuckles. Up to 5k if a pro does everything. That is based on a 32' boat a neighbor owns and his new rig, professionally done, was 5k. I figure my 27' boat will cost me about 1500 - 1600 doing it myself (except the swages) including new turnbuckles. I am replacing the main chainplates but that is not included in this price.

Doesn't Catalina offer kits for this? You might check with the Catalina owners' sites....
