hellosailor John, unless you have lots of time and special skills (and you say you don't have time) and want to do something terribly special...I'd say forget about it!

The number of half-built and abandoned kit boats on the market over the years has finally dried up as people just stopped trying to build them. And the folks who did build them? Have long ago found out that when the time comes--when not if--that you want to sell the boat, "home built" has much less value than "stock".

What you may save up front you will lose at the other end, un;ess you are trying to do something labor- and skill-intensive, like building a one-off steel boat of a type that's simply not mass marketed and not available any other way.

Buy an old plain boat, throw out the worn out stuff, rebuild and refit the rest. You'll put in much less labor, get much more value, and when you want to do something really odd like, insure it? You'll have a much easier time there too.

PCP Two more:

This one is smaller (7.5m) but it comes complete, like a puzzle. They talk about 6 hours for assembling it (200 pieces) and 6 days for a finished boat, painted and all.

OroO/ Oro'o: Un voilier monocoque en kit !

This one is bigger (10.8m) and come with a numeric Kit. That means that you give those instructions to a computer aided saw machine and the wood pieces are cut with the right measure.

PCP If you like modern and fast cruisers have a look at the FOX 10.20.

They can deliver the boat to you in different stages, as you wish.

That's a Charles Bertan design. He is one of the most talented new generation French designers.

Eagle Harbor is a fun place to visit. I know for a while the city was trying to get rid of some of the more derelict floating junkpiles that were anchored out in the harbor. They have any luck?

You can always buy my 1984 Catalina 36. Nice boat except some delam on the deck and some blisters on the hull. Definitely a bargain as though issues are cosmetic, but fixable if you want to take the time. ;-) I am tired of paying moorage on two boats.

newhaul are you stuck with the 30s size there is a coronado 41 in south seattle for 4500 needs new deck and interior redone its listed on craigslist

blt2ski Rock,

The boat is in seattle, been moored on Lake washington about a year now. Deck IIRC is about 26' or there abouts, 32-33' including bow sprit and boomkin. Its a late 70's design ment for plywood build of the original Thomas Day seabird yawl that was in Rudder back int he early 1900's. Full keel too.

Your SO37 is a much nicer faster boat frankly! as is my 85 Arcadia. But he put some funky Sabb motor in it, with a prop that always turns, blades are flat in rotation for nuetral, you then vary the prop pitch to go forward or reverse. Great motor/trans setup for the rescue boats in the scandanavian country's, but for a personal use rig.....funky! Smallish alum masts, and wires that were designed for wood masts.......hard to tune properly etc.
