deniseO30 guessing 80K here. I'm sure it's been "pilfered" of anything of value.

LandLocked66c No doubt!

Wild guess, how many boat bucks would it take to get this girl in the water? I'm thinking 20k is only the beginning.

deniseO30 you could but even if the boat were free... rigging isn't cheap.

LandLocked66c I would love to own an old salty boat like that!

Instead of wooden spars, wouldn't you want to update it with aluminum ones?

deniseO30 It's a beautiful boat. hope someone saves it.

WanderingStar Those boats were designed and built glass over strip. It's a good method (not balsa) and they have a good rep. There is an ebay find in my marina, a 41' ketch that had broken masts. The owner bought it cheap, repaired the spars, and now sails a boat he could not otherwise afford.
I agree that with projct boats one has to sort through many rocks before finding a gem. But if you don't look at all you won't find anything.

SlowButSteady Looks like it only needs a few years of work, and a budget that would probably pay for a brand new boat, to get her in Bristol condition.

Yeah, amazing how much depends on how it was stored. Only the survey will tell...

For the record, we're hopefully splashing as soon as Simcoe melts (well, and Passover ends). I'm sure you're already sailing...
