It won't be easy but it's doable. Watch for rot issues with bulkheads and any other wood that was immersed. What kind of water? Salt, brackish or fresh?

With careful shopping and $36K you can find a boat that floats, sails, and motors.

salt water aprox submersion time 3 hrs if that amount of time affects the future damage. r u familiar with formosa? ive read afew comments mostly negitive on this boat. but i wasnt botherd by the comments however the conversations between the pro formosa and the cons sure can get heated up.
