Ouch. 4-5 years in the water means an awful lot of growth. Like mussels?

Nogin, I went through this with my Islander 26. The hull, rigging, mast and boom where solid. It did not have an engine. I gutted the boat over the winter and refit to the point it was sail-able during the spring. I spent the next 5 years tweaking and adding to her. Enjoyed both the opportunity to learn. There is lots of good information on the Internet from people who have been down this road before. Getting supplies and parts is not that expensive if you are not in a hurry and a little creative.

Would I do it again? Probably will as I can't afford the boat I want in ready condition. Plus by refitting prior to cruising I will know the condition and have familiarity.

If you have time and are looking for a fun adventurous project i would say go for it.

By the way, i sold my boat and recovered everything I put into it except dock fees.

A people that values its privileges above it's principles will soon lose both.

Yeah, but if you're sailing and you get hungry, just pull some off the hull and throw in a nice marina sauce!

My boat should be launched today

We'll get Joe sailing!

Nogin,

BarryL's a big help. He even loaned me his car last year so I could see my son play Lacrosse during the fall migration of our boat. (Thanks Barry.)He's good to sail with too.

I must admit being interested in the boat with the good sails. I'm finding the spring projects on our boat are like thereapy or something. You get to 1) learn a lot, 2) see the results of you work very quickly and 3) enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done. However, not sure I have the driveway for it.

Regards,
Brad

For us paying for yard space while fixing made it a dollar NO GO and there is a LOT of stuff even the NICE yards will not allow and in the winter the way they pack the boats your lucky you can even walk to it

In my restore we did the math on moving the boat around between home and the marina IF we did a partial restore and went sailing this season and its BIG dollars.



The big problem we found in doing the restore off season is the cold prevents most painting and epxoy work and i gota tell you when its 15 degs its a bitch to warm the boat up

I was able to do a massive amount of work in the cold BUT could not do any of the outside paint work

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

I made another driveway as my "boat driveway" and got a 40 boat port enclosure. Lucky me!

Just found out that this boat is pretty rare. Only 80 built ever and in production from 1965 - 1968. I like that.

BarryL is coming with me in the am to give her a quick look over. Thanks Barry!!!
