Well, obviously they are hideous boats, but they also do have a ton of room inside. THe google will give you a lot of ideas and pics.

A good source of parts and such are rvs if you really want to hack some stuff out.

Here is a little blog about someone restoring one.

re: need buccaneer 210 help

well the is nothing inside! nothing! lol. just a pile of parts. but hull and deck is solid. other then a couple dimples from years on a trailer not ment for it. i want the berth up front. walled in with a door. a rv style fold out couch along the starboard side would be nice. as i have one, lol. accross from that the stove and sink. between that and the birth i was thinking the toilet. as i said the boat is just bare fiberglass inside. so i want to recover it but i want it bright inside. here is a pic of what mine looks like. other then mine is a beautiful blue.

re: need buccaneer 210 help

Here's some specs on the boat BUCCANEER 240 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
Also don't listen to the naysayers the boats are good and considering they have a good pedigree the hull iss derived from the Columbia 23 Columbia T-23 Specifications people just don't get the cabin structure on it that's all I like it gives standing head room throughout

re: need buccaneer 210 help

Well if it's truly bare glass everywhere, then you've got a clean slate to start with.. generate some drawings and start playing around with various layouts.

One thing.. when working with a plan view don't forget that nothing's vertical or square. Things that look like they may fit/work from that perspective will be quite different when you're actually working with the 3D shape of the boat, esp up forward where the hull flare is maximum and things narrow up quickly. A full set of lines would be ideal but may be very hard to come by.

I'd also mock things up with cardboard or, better yet, doorskin prior to building the final version.

re: need buccaneer 210 help

i intended to use hd plastic type cardboard like for signs for all the mock up. does anyone know were i can get a door for the front birth? then i can build a frame around it. also i was thinking i should build the walls in as a structural support? i could fiberglass brackets onto the inside to tie it all together for added strength as i do intend for it to be a coastal hopper. also what about wwater makers? is the a way to make one that is solar powered? i cant go spending 5k plus on a free boat. not for one part. lol

re: need buccaneer 210 help

Chase down some Utube videos on fiberglass 'tabbing' for bulkheads.. I think it's time for some serious research before you start this project. If you're able to reconstruct the interior a door should not be a challenge to build yourself.. leaving aside for the moment whether or not you really 'need' a door of any kind. Privacy is an illusion on any boat smaller than 60 feet or so.

Watermakers are expensive, power hungry generally though there are manual models intended for survivors in liferafts - they won't produce much water and require much effort. I reckon you'd be the first non-offshore 24 footer that installed one. Thinking about a watermaker at this stage is a pretty big red flag....

Good luck with this, and understand that I mean this kindly, but I think you don't know yet what you don't know about this sort of thing...
