Oh I'll finish her alright and enjoy her for a while. The thought of restoring a nice 50+ ft schooner has a certain appeal though....., nah...

Charlie got a great deal on this boat IIRC, something ridiculous like $20 or so..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Re: A not so nice refit surprise...

thats the price you pay for previous owners who do not think things thru...or do work to get by the issue facing them.

Re: A not so nice refit surprise...

That is one beautiful boat. I grew up around wooden boats, I love the looks, feel, and smell of wooden boats.. I just do not have the time to take of them like they deserve

Don't worry.. it happens to plastic boats too. Mine is 50 years old this year and suffering from "previous owneritus" with questionable wiring, odd screws drilled through the glass from outside to hold in shelves, and juwst general shabbiness.
