This thread is like watching a slow motion financial train wreck. My advice is to get out of, or walk away from, this situation asap.

Re: Outboard on 1974 Pearson 10m?

Paul, yes, I'm definitely in over my head lol... owned a 91 Miata til recently as well. Tranny went and would have cost more than the car was "worth", but I miss "Mia" alot. She was supposed to be a gift to my daughter before the breakdown. I'm 45 now, so I feel you with the divorce. Couldn't pass up on the boat, regardless. If i'm out the whole lot, at least I tried, and I can sell the sails and keel, etc. if I have to. Don't think it will go that far. I'm a resourceful guy. thanks for the input, Fair Winds and good luck!

Just be careful with them, have you watched shipping wars with guys who don't understand what they are getting into when trying to ship something? That show is based on UShip. Would hate to see your boat slip off the back of a truck!

I really don't want to sound discouraging but given your current finical/family situation perhaps you are over your head? I am also going through a divorce after 20 years and looking for a boat to live on. The X is actually encouraging me to do so. I am considering a good solid Pearson 10M but it is at the bottom of the list and kind of my back up boat plan. Insurance should not be that big of a deal, you will just need liability so you should be able to find some without a survey, Progressive offers it. You will only need survey if you are looking for full coverage.

Ideal would be to find a local Sandy/Irene damaged boat diesel to put in. But it will take some time to get it in so you will have to factor in housing while doing it if you want to do it up here. another option is to have the truck take the motor with it down to FL. I think you will be surprised at how expensive the storage is up in CT. I am in New York a couple of hours away and I know the storage rates are much higher in CT than locally.

There have been a few threads here about boats that were being bought after Sandy, I don't remember seeing any that ended well. Sailboats are a great dream, I have been working on my dream now since I was a teenager, and am finally ready to jump at 48. But boats are no fun when you can't fix things as they go wrong, and yes they will go wrong. There is a reason people call them Boat Bucks ($1000) as that seems to be the amount most problems cost to fix.

Thanks. I want to do right by her. Everything I've read about these has been stellar. I did my homework before bidding...It really seems like an excellent boat, and the auction money went to a good cause!

just wondering how you get insurance on a boat that has been repowered with an outboard that was not designed for the boat. will the surveyor sign off on this. perhaps they will. but will the insurance pay off if god forbid you have a problem.
Yeah, I don't know about the insurance angle yet. Just looking for ideas first, but I'd like to get here to Florida, where I live, before working on her. I COULD store her in the yard in CT for the season. I'm looking at used engines now.

Re: Outboard on 1974 Pearson 10m?

I honestly don't see how you'd get an outboard mounted to the back of a Pearson 10M and motor 1500 miles without other major incidents for much less.

$500 in fuel, $1000 for a used extra long shaft outboard, $200 for mount, $500 for 20 days worth of food, plus some money to cover the emergencies that are going to come up? This assumes you can afford the time off of work.

The temporary mounts putting a motor onto a ladder are great for moving the boat 10 miles from a port to a haul out. I don't think it's the right solution for 1500 miles of motoring.

Of course moving the boat by truck will also have additional costs. At a minimum it'll need to be de-rigged and re-rigged at each end.
