Hunter 54 refit and a month to do it in....

This boat just got off of a truck from FL. It's a mess and we've been tasked to replace the sole, refinish the interior, remove the teak decking and paint her. All in a month. Here's a slide show so you can see the mess for yourselves....

That's got to be a storm damaged boat. It looks as though she was flooded and had filled with silt. This would explain the holes in the remaining sole, and the badly damaged electrical panels.

Are you rewiring and replumbing her too? There is NO way that I'd use that stove!

Holy crap that's nasty. I'd say it takes real commitment to get boat to that level of detritus.

No doubt you'll make her look great, Charlie. But I'd worry about the wiring and other systems if I were buying.

Charlie,

These are really neat old boats. I hope you don't mind me giving you a heads-up on something that you may have already heard about. Apparently, at least some of these boats have a cast iron steering quadrant, on a stainless steel rudder post, passing through a bronze rudder post shaft log. Needless to say, the metalurgy is condusive to a limited lifespan. You may want to check this.

Otherwise, best of luck, that is one tight timeframe.

Jeff

Red face Oh My...

I know a master shipwright that could do such a project... but I would estimate it at six months minimum, and "about" (as in a SWAG) $100K.
Yikes.
You're a brave man!
