Free boat for me - lots of questions

Here''s a question that no one has addressed, but IMHO is REALLY important: does the current owner have the title work for the boat, AND is the title free and clear of all liens? If the answer is no, run away as fast as you can. An untitled boat will likely prove to be more stress than the boat is worth (depending on your state''s titleing process, of course.)

Fair winds, in any case.

WOW. WHat a great opportunity for someone who knows so little. First, TAKE THE BOAT. Next find out how much it would cost to have it scrapped. THat becomes your base. Then clean the bottom, yourself. What a better way to learn about everything!!1. Have some look at it for blisters etc. and either repair it yourself or have some else do it. Then go to the topsides. Does she need paint? I painted my 37''s hull with 1 quart of paint. Get one part and thin it 60%. Paint put paint on it with a roller, then take it off or spread it with a foam brush. Do the topsides too. Then, have someone with a sailboat look at her and tell you what she needs. ASK any sailboat owner. You will get a lot of info for free and only YOU will be able to digest it and figure out what really needs to be done. Look at it this way, what better way to learn EVERYTHING. How fun!!!!!1

I have a 5HP long shaft Tahatsu Outboard on my Precision 23. It has been an absolutely terrific motor and the 5hp has gotten me where I wanted to go just fine!
