Westerly Warwick 22 ft Sloop
Thinking about purchasing a Westerly Warwick 22 ft Sloop. However, it needs a full assortment of sails. It also needs rub rails, and non-skid for the deck. It also needs reassembled. The purchase price for the vessel is negligible. The current owner says I should be able to finish the boat for $2,500 if I am frugal enough. I was planning for $5,000 over 2 years. Most of the work has been done to the boat.
The owner states " I have stripped the hull and interior and began the restoration. The hull has never been damaged. The really hard work has been done. I stripped off 4 coats of paint. I glassed in un necessary holes in the deck, fixed a few bilsters, applied 5 coats of West Systems Barier Coat, 4 Coats of Urethane Primer, and have applied 4 coats of Linear Poly Urethane Paint. The fall weather turned cold before I could finish the last sanding and coat of paint. I have the LPU paint to finish the job. The deck is in great physical condition and awaits a coat of non skid. I have most of the original teak wood. I planned to restore her with using white oak wood and I have purchased material for the companion way and side rails.
I have purchased sheet of 5/16" dark plexiglass for the windows and companion way. I have the mast and boom and all of the wire rigging and turn buckles. I carefully removed all of the hardware and interior pieces and it awaits installation. I have most of the hardware to go back onto her, a few common pieces stilll need to be purchased."
I have allotted 2 years and a budget of $5,000-$7,000 to buy and fix up a boat.
Thank you for your time,
