Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

I'll second the recommendation for Baggett and Sons Marine Restoration if you are willing to work with someone as far north as Bellingham, WA. He posts as Charlie Cobra here on Sailnet. He's good folks and does absolutely top notch work. If you want to investigate, you need look no farther than his threads here as he documents some of his boat projects. The restoration of the wood boats Oh Joy and Lady J are some of my favorite Sailnet posts. Look for them through Google, restricting the search to the sailnet.com site.

Charlie does FRP too, and recently brought a Fischer 46 into the shop for repair. It has been a month. I wonder when he's going to post an update on it? But I digress.

Good luck with your decision. We're all rooting for you!

Tom

I understand, but a general ballpark, give or take 5k will help those of us trying to help narrow down the search and save you some time and frustration.

I guess what I am saying is that while I have only seen pictures of the damages to S/V Libby I don't think that those damages are much worse then I was able to fix, myself. I had money left over for other goodies for my beloved boat.

I'm not sure how you came up with your estimates for repair or who you used (if you found people willing to offer an estimate). I still think you should contact Baggett & Sons: Baggett and Sons Marine Restoration
My $.02.
Part of my settlement deal was me getting a check and keeping the boat. I didn't have to buy her back, she's mine to do with as I see fit. That's nice. Regards the damage, it's much more than a hole in the cabin. There's extensive deck de-lamination, damaged hardware ($1200 in parts alone), a bulkhead was shifted and needs to be rebuilt, bowsprit bent, interior damage, and on and on. The damage to the boat is a lot, more than a patch job. I had CSR work up the estimate for me, and I have heard of Charlie Cobra doing good work. There's more to it than just having it repaired, there's the logistics of where will I stay? I live aboard. It's summer, hotels are expensive. It's just a pain in the @ss to spend thousands to repair a boat, lose so much time, and still have a boat that needs my upgrades. Mathematics are not in Libby's favor right now.

I'll try to think of a creative way to demonstrate my budget. I'd say boats in my price range were made in the 70s and early 80s, 30-36 feet, sloops, nothing too fancy. Pacific Seacrafts, Cape Dorys, Ta Shings, while great boats, way too much mulah. It's tough, because right now with this market, if a seller is motivated, the deals are spectacular. But then, i've seen a couple of Islanders, in worse shape than mine (pre-damage) asking a whopping lot. Tough to say.

CK, you might want to add this site to your search,
Boats for Sale, Yachts for Sale, Repo Boats, Luxury Yacht Auctions, Used Boats

They list a Beneteau 343 in Oregon.


And I think this one is in your backyard:
http://www.48north.com/



Good luck.

Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

Just remember that asking price is not selling price. If the boat fits your needs then go look at it. If you like it then put in a bid.

Quick anecdote.

I moved to Florida in 95.

No job etc etc.

I looked at houses I could buy cash.
I found one that for reasons of New Jersey estate law could not be closed in less that 60 to 90 days. At the time 30 days to close where what most people had to have per there finance company. I put in a bid for 65% of asking price....Broker flipped out of course but by law they must submit. I closed for 68% of asking by being a hard butt. They had to sell because estate was open. It was on the market for 9 months.

You have NO IDEA why the owner is selling but assume they need the money fast.
Bid what u can afford. All they can say is no.

Yep, I know allll about this. It's how I "stole" my last boat. Not to worry, I won't be taken or intimidated by brokers. It's also why I'm shy about declaring my budget. Asking price and selling price are completely different.

48° North - The Sailing Magazine

Good luck.
I have a copy of 48 north on my table. Dog-eared. I've got bookmarks to possible boats on YW, Sailboat listings, Craig's List. What I'm really looking for are boats that are not listed on line, boats that people are considering selling but haven't listed yet. I'm trying to float a balloon and see what else is out there.

Well done! What a great way to give a budget without revealing your wallet.

Then what you should do is walk the storage areas of local marinas. Talk with the staff there about boats that interest you on the hard -- ones that have been there a while, look neglected, but aren't trash yet. The staff might be able to give you some insight on who would be open to an offer.

Good luck!

Regards

Tom
