I also have purchased a project boat and we have had it for 2 years and haven't done much with it at all. My husband lost interest in it so I don't know
how to do the work myself. I hope to do something with it to get it in the water and learn to sail....

That's too bad. Maybe you need to sell it and get one that's ready to go.

Yes, you may be right. I have put the boat for sale on a popular site here
in Maine. But, no one has bought it yet. I think because it needs work. We
probably paid too much for it not knowing what needed to be done to it. I
just love the look of it....

Great thread .I was wondering how your top deck paint is holding up? I have an old Watkins w23 . This boat is in rough shape cosmetically and not to bad of shape otherwise.This boat was given to me and I knew nothing about sailing except that I wanted to learn.Well now I'm going to paint this next spring (I live in Monticello mn,USA ) and I thought you boat looks great.Did you have to fill anything? I have looked into some of the spray in bed liners for the cabin but hadn't given much thought about the top deck.Is your paint working for you/ Thanks for your time Bill
