Well put. I have done a fair amount of wood working and some welding, two totally different worlds. I wonder why the lady couldn't find a buyer, maybe not even a broker willing to give one cent on the dollar? Just wondering.

Brief update....

Hi all..
You have already met my 13 year old son. He posted a question on our Samofa diesel. Thanks very much for your replies. We are looking into the new information resources you have provided. We have much to learn and quickly. The boat is due up here (Vermont) in a matter of days and we still have to figure out some of the winterization program. We are banking on the fact that 1/2 of the journey for the vessel overland is in warm climates. We are hoping and praying that the 30,000 lbs of mass will keep the rest of it warm until we are able to pop the hatch here and finish the winter prep.

We'll share more in a week or so. Lots to do right now - hiring a crane to lift it off of the trailer here where it will be for a very long and proper restoration. We are confident we can handle it and are aware of the time involved. This boat fell from heaven from a fallen sailors misfortune. Bless him....

The photos were of the boat 15 years ago.... we hope to return it to that condition with a few changes of course! Enjoy the photos if I am able to post them!

ps. be cool with my young son.... he is a natural born bilge rat! please help him learn what he can do and not what he can't!

More later.
Fair winds...

Jay (dad)

ps. the bilges are mint. Virtually NO rust. A fine and proper vessel she is.

Thanks for the good wishes. The hull is in excellent shape in general. The problem is that in the early 80's in was common to lay teak decks over steel. It was not until the 90's everyone realized that sea water will always find its way between the two and it will eat away the steel. The screw holes leak and the interiors suffer greatly. Which is exactly the case here. We will post some current photos when we get the boat up here. The interior is (as the most recent surveyor put it) "a disaster". But everything else is there (now in storage). We hope to bring back a wonderful little ship from the brink of scrapping. My kids will be heading out on their own in 10 years so my timeline is more than comfortable.

I had only a matter of hours to work out a deal with the owner - we eventually settled on an agreement and then I set to work removing the valuables and moving to storage and prepping the the hull for the big move North. There is GREAT risk in buying a boat this way but I have been studying metal hulls for the past year and feel this is an excellent bet. I am very nervous about the expenses I will incur but big gains are rarely met with little risk. Sick to my stomach actually, but hey... I felt exactly the same way when I heard I was the proud owner of a 38' ketch (fifteen years ago). Those days were some of the best in my life. Purchasing Maverick is the beginning of my senior years and I hope to make them some of the most enjoyable of them all. I am now a career fireman... life is plenty busy!

More later.

Sail on!

Jay

Woo, Teak on steel never thought of that! No kind of screw would last long I'm sure. (dissimilar metals and all that) Suggestion, If the inside is bad consider 1/8" veneer plywood to overlay, rather then rip out and replace panels and bulkheads if they are not too badly rotted. Structural pieces of course should be very closely inspected.
good luck!
