The $1 Dollar Boat

Hi Guys, And so it begins. Here is a link to show the project boat I have taken on. Subscribe to follow along for all the "fun". Let me know what you think of her. Am I nuts? Yes I know, I expect zero return on my investment but I have always had my eye on these boats. For $1 dollar how could I say no? She spoke to me as soon as I saw her. Cheers.

Best of luck to you! I have done crazier things so my opinion is irrelevant, but it is a great design and well worth of restoration.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

Good luck! Maybe you could call it the "Loonie".

Good one! Lol. I named her after another bird though, "Wiskejak" native spelling for Whiskey Jack or the Gray Jay. I'll need some to drink as well.

Best you invest in a case of the ol Grey Goose while you still have a few loonies left.

That would do the trick as well.

it's not the zero ROI that should scare you ,,,,, it's the $100,000 dollars and five years you are never going to get back.

ETTLE WEEL - every single AC and DC wire and component on the vessel requires replacement and noe of the electricals meet any known standard, the propane system is dangerous and will have to be replaced in it's enirety, the decks, trunk and cockpit coring are done, you can't tell how good the chainplates are unless you remove them, the hull deck joint is in very poor condition and all the cap rails are severely degraded. The atomic4
installation is completely unsafe (fuel system, ventilation, ignition protection).

RUN !

PS. That 100k is only if you do absolutely everything yourself.

Most of my relationships start that way.
Actually there should be a joke: 'Mark walks into a bar and as soon as he saw her she said....'

ETTLE WEEL

Sounds like you have a connection with her past?

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

Big job, you're going to need an interim boat while you work on her.

Go down to work on boat for a few hours.

Work on boat for half an hour, go sailing for 2 and a half.

All is good.
