Re: Challenger 40..... A good foundation?
Totally late to this conversation but we have purchased a Challenger 40 a few months ago and have finally started working on her. She needed some help but she will be well worth it.
We just purchased a Challenger 40 a couple months ago and have just started to fix her up. Wasn't used for over 6 years and had a few problems but nothing that cant be handled. Structurally she is sound and no blisters and engine in good shape and what not.
But I would love to have any documentation you all have as ours is a Sloop as well. Its a 1972, and I am gutting all the wood out of vberth and rebuilding it as it had termites in that area, have to change flooring too, about 45% of the floor I will be redoing. Have gone through the whole boat to check for any other wood damage and that seems to be the stent of those little bugs. Over all it is wood work and standing rig along with restepping the mast. I would love to see how your mast is stepped, this one is all corroded and I will be glassing it in once done. I am also redoing most if not all the electrical wires, and will be leaving some extras up in the mast when I do it as well for future upgrades. Thanks for any info you may have.
