Well boys and girls, ladies and germs ......... I've decided to pull the trigger on this sad mess of a boat and bring her back to life! I have a tough grueling road ahead of me but I know I can do it.

Splash date set ~ May 16th (my sons 9th B Day and this boat is going to be his gift!!!) That gives me 3 weeks. My goal is to dedicate a good 4 hours a day everyday to her to get-er done. Unrealistic, perhaps????


I will be starting a new thread for her rebuild soon with pictures and descriptions for all to follow.

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.

Look forward to the build!

Congrats and good luck!
I think boats are kind of like rescued pets. When you bring them back from disaster, they treat you better.
As you bring her back to former beauty, you can rest easy knowing repairs are done right.

Thanks guys! I am very excited to dive in but I am afraid I was just dealt some bad news regarding my Thompson. Turns out the previous mechanic who will remain anonymous (PM me if you are in the PJ - Mt.Sinai area to stay clear of this guy!!) who rebuilt my Port Drive last year did not put the Gimbal Housing in correctly so water and sand got into the block stripping the flywheel. Now the engine has to come out and a new flywheel installed. Thankfully my new mechanic who is super reliable and an awesome guy all around, waived his hourly charge for the 2 hours he spent on it today. More money into the Thompson taking away from the O Day until she sells. So glad I am moving over to sail boating!!

Congrats and good luck on the refit. I am jealous as I have no boat and right now a project is better than the nothing I have. Again, good luck and looking forward to the pics of the refit.

Well it turns out you have nothing to be jealous of. The owner changed his mind and wouln't let me work on it in his yard as originally agreed. It's not worth the extra few hundred plus to bring it to a yard and work on it.

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