Jeff,

Thanks for all the info. I knew about pricing and that they are hard to sell. I also know they have their die hard followers like most things.

As far as getting parts I am pretty good at getting deals. Not sure how wxpensive things are on CL up your way, but down here in SC they fairly decent here. Found a 9.9 long shaft outboard for $350. (in running condition)

I plan to keep the boat for a season or so I can learn to sail. If I lose $2,000 after learning to sail, I will call that the cost of experience. As far as leaving out interior pieces such as bunks, flats, case work, and shelves, I am not exactly sure what all those pieces are but will google them. I would also run some support pieces and glass those in as well.

Must have for this boat are porta potty, cooking stove, sink, and fresh water storage. I do not plan to sleep on it. May do some fishing and cruising around.

Bill

How do I tell if the blisters are in the paint or in the fiberglass? It looks like they are in the paint to me. I ask because I got a price quote of $400 to paint the hull if the blisters are in the paint from a semi-local marina.

Pop one or 2 and see if they are paint shallow or deeper. They have to be popped in any case - for repair or painting.

I guess pits would be a better description. Looks like PO never cleaned the bottom. See link for pics:

Can't tell, no close-up of blisters. But does just look like a really bad bottom paint. But boy you got work! Of course, the flipside... if you leave it empty... make it functional again, it'd be REALLY quick!

I couldn't see a close-up of a blister there. When the blister is popped the thickness of it should tell you whether is is just paint or deeper though.

I will try to post close up pics tomorrow. The marina said as long as the fiberglass does not need work, they will paint the hull for $400. This includes prep/sand and 2 coats of ablatative paint. I think this is a good deal. Once that is done, I will need to choose between installing the rebuilt inboard or going with an outboard.

I also would not reccommend putting time and money into this boat.

If I end up getting the bottom painted for $400, it should only cost another $200-$300 to glass in the bulkheads. The original inboard has been rebuilt and came with the boat. It just needs a prop shaft. I can get a used 9.9 hp longshaft outboard for $300 in running condition. That puts me about $1,000 total if I do not use the inboard. I have not priced the prop shaft but the PO said he found them online for $125.

I also get to sell the 35 ft sailboat trailer that came with this boat. If I get at least $1,000 I will break even. The standing and running rigging is all new.
