Thanks!

We are starting the clean, strip, tear out, open up and explore period of new boat ownership. It is fun, hard work and we are trying to figur out how to get to the water sooner!

Suggestion; just like when buying house.. Don't tear into it without a plan? Being it's a boat that was hopefully given a seaworthy report from the Survey (you did have a survey right?) Just do what has to be done; that which cannot be done when she's in the water. She is a beautiful boat! She needs to sailed!

BTW, looks like barrier coat under the bottom paint on the rudder! that's a good thing!

Congrats guys. I always liked the high coaming on the HC. Nice looking boats and very strong. She will keep you well.

You are so right. There were two previous owners; never really set up beyond OEM in 1982. The 12v, 120v, cold and hot water systems all need updating. These are all a lot of sweat equity and not a fair amount of $$ equity. She needs some "core" work in the bow and some re-bedding. We have a definite period of time to invest in Sundown to make her comfortable and seaworthy prior to shipping her to deep water.

While on the boat, I can actually see prairie dogs and coyotes from the cockpit! It is fine though, because she is only about a mile from the house making it convenient to get to her.

I always appreciate an additional opinion when it comes to boats. I have no desire to re-invent the wheel and value others experience with similar projects.

Sailing is the goal.Our nine year plan has moved to a three year plan and we are trying to figure out how to shorten it even further.

We still have the wonder of not even knowing where we will launch! It is all very exciting!
