Re: Lash Me To The Mast Before I Buy A Boat!

Go for it, Julie. Best times of my life have been while sailing. It is not justifiable from any financial aspect, but that doesn't matter.

A good friend of mine would say... "don't fall in love with the boat, fall in love with the deal". If the hull and rigging are sound, the sails serviceable then the rest is something to do when you get board.

From reading some of posts sounds like you're up to the challange. Sometimes restoring a boat is not worth the time and effort but sometimes it more than pays besides...I can't wait to see the pics of you tied to the mast

Eastport??? you thinking of leaving it on the bay?

That is typical Sabre rot. Good news, these boats are stick built so you can rip them apart & put them back together, no liner pan to deal with.

If you buy this old gal, hop aboard the Yahoo Sabre email forum. There's alot of knowledge, good people & owner photo albums that have documented upgrades & fixes.

I'll check out the Yahoo site. Thanks!

The woodwork on this doesn't concern me. It's the fiberglass. From what I've read and heard the rotted knees can be cut out and replaced. I can do that. But then it all has to be bedded in with fiberglass. My biggest concern is making sure the bedding is bonded to the existing structure. That, and not dying from the epoxy fumes!

Re: Lash Me To The Mast Before I Buy A Boat!

Given that every boat will continue to offer ongoing repair opportunities, I've always found it unwise to get started with a serious list.

It's pretty straight forward, I've gutted a large portion of our 28. Replace the whole bulkhead because from the picture you've posted, they're toast. Take the old ones out in a way that allows you to use them for templates. Once the new ones are back in place they get glassed to the hull. Long as the surfaces are sanded & clean, it'll stick.

Wear a respirator w/ a carbon filter to minimize the buzz of epoxy fumes
