Just looked at a Cheoy Lee today...
Hey guys, so my hunt continues of course to get my first boat to spiff up and make my new traveling home.
I have been looking at 25-30' ranges and planned on staying in that range until,,
I found a 36 clipper cheoy lee for 2200$
shocking..... and as you can guess, needs a LOT of work.
However, this vessels beauty intrigued me enough to check her out and that I did.
I want to know what you think it will take for a guy like me with moderate income to help bring out her true beauty again.. I know the bigger the boat the more costly but,, Im in no rush to get out and go.
I have pictures I will post you guys,, I just wanna know what you think, if its worth the work for a novice like me. or will i just pour money into her, and be constantly broke.
-Perkins diesel that ran 4 months ago, somehow not now.
-one of each sail in moderate condition (dirty)
-original wooden blocks
-been sitting behind a gentlemans house for 8 years
she does NOT have:
-working d/c electrical(cabin lights/ water pumps)
-the galley is missing! no cabinets, nothin just a stove which im not sure works
-head needs replacement kit along with pumps?
-a safe running / standing rigging set up
-ceiling is peeling?
-lots more cosmetics
shell have to be at a marina and thats the only thing worrying me is finding a monthly payment that will allow me to still save money for refurbishing
