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.

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

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?
