Kicking off a dream

(1) check out Tim Lackey''s site at http://www.triton381.com/ and his other associated sites and his Classic Plastic Forum for project boat owners/workers.

(2) While undertaking the gix up, you will want to have the boat stored at your house so that you can work on it all the time. If it is at a boatyard 2 hours away, it will be hard to do.

(3) buy the right boat -- one that has "good bones." Check out the first chapter of Don Casey''s "This Old Boat" for the outline of a good scheme for selecting a project boat (or any boat, for that matter).

Good Luck,

Tim

Kicking off a dream

A friend and I decided that now we are in the real world we are ready to start saving and kick off our dream of fixing up and sailing a boat. We are looking at older boats in the 28-33 ft range that range from 7-10 grand. We know we will not complete this in just a few months and fully expect it to take several years, but that is just part of the fun right! To the point..... We are looking for suggestions and advice on anything obvious, and not so obvious that will help us along our way. Storage, Mooring, Boats, Etc..... Basically anything and everything. We are reading and doing as much research as possible but I want the voices of the experienced. Thanks for all your help!
