I have the RL80C. By today's standard, its graphics are substandard. However, it is a very capable chartplotter. I thought about upgrading last year and brought the electronics guy onboard.

He actually told me I was crazy. He said I had a perfectly good system and I shouldn't consider replacing it until something fails. He was right.

edit: gorgeous boat, btw. If I was in the market, I might bid against you. A beauty.

Right you most certainly are... I was, as we all often do, thinking more specifically of our boat. Only 22 gallons, tank is easy to get to and remove. Had it priced out 3 years ago when we got the boat as we thought there might be an issue. We've got a great local shop in a competitive market that includes a lot of commercial marine so it's more reasonable than a lot of places. Speaking of PITA tankage to replace, the worst I've ever seen was helping a friend remove a fuel tank from a Norseman 447... It was a living hell and no way to get it out without removing much of the teak around the companionway hatch. I can't imagine that that one cost the owner less than 5-6k.

A friend had steel tanks in an older CHB Trawler... of course after 20 years they were shot. He had to go in with a zip cutter and literally cut them to pieces.

The only way the new tanks would go back in was if they were 30% smaller - and the engine (6Cyl Ford Lehman) had to come out first!

This a suggestion if you wish to pursue this endeavor (I would not). Many aircraft such as Piper use bladder tanks. There are many people listed in Trade A Plane magazine that custom make these bladders. You could cut an access hole and place a bladder inside of the original tank. They last for around fifteen years on average. Could be the way to go.

I wouldn't care if the electronics are out of date. If they are functioning, good enough. When something breaks, you can replace then.

I love the boat. New diesel and electrical are huge plusses. Woodwork seems to be in beautiful shape. I bet the rigging and the sails are on par and kept well maintained/replaced.

Financing a boat that is above it's average market value is next to impossible though unless you put in enough down payment to make the difference and some more.

7.7 knots. All I did was Google "bristol 41.1 hull speed".

Hull speed is not indicative of how a boat sails really. It is generally considered to be 1.34 x square root of the waterline length.

A barge with the same waterline would have the same theoretical hull speed - but it wouldn't sail nearly as well.
