Who's Our Contestant 4 Name That Price!?

The following is a very brief description of needed maintenance for a boat that is for sale:

This boat is 35 years old. Maintenance is an ongoing effort. In summary, there is some minor surface damage to the rudder, the mast seal at the deck needs to be redone, Tabbing repairs needed, re-beddibng of deck hardware, dodger needs repair. Bright work needs refinishing. She is sailable as is and has been operating yearly since we purchased her 5 years ago.

Can anybody give a rough ballpark figure on what this might cost? ship yard and/or DIY?

It is a sloop design. I don't know what "tabbing" means. I'll google it, but don't know w/ what kind of success. Assume the DIYer has the skillset to perform the needed repairs. And I'm fully aware there's probably other issues. I'm just trying to get a perspective.

"tabbing" means tying the bulkheads/ furniture into the hull.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Minor surface damage to a rudder can mean that water has penetrated the rudder and caused the rudder stock and webbing to corrode. This can be a very expensive repair. Without more information, it is hard to say whether this is just in need of refinishing or needs to be re-built completely.

Quote:
the mast seal at the deck needs to be redone,
If the mast partners have been leaking a while and the deck is cored and wasn't properly sealed, the deck around the mast partners may have started to delaminate. Again, without more information, it is hard to say how expensive a repair this is. It could be inexpensive as buying and applying a package of Spartite, or as expensive as re-coring the deck.

Tabbing repairs needed,
How extensive a tabbing repair are we talking about?

Quote:
re-beddibng of deck hardware,
Is the deck hardware in good shape or has it suffered from crevice corrosion?

Quote:
dodger needs repair.
What kind of repairs. In many cases replacement is not much more expensive, especially if the dodger is older and UV damaged.

Quote:
Bright work needs refinishing.
What bright work, and what finish. Paying someone to varnish is pretty expensive.

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.
