Congradulations!

Congratulations on your new boat! It doesn't look bad to me, but then again I just recently jumped ship from an old wooden boat I lived on for 6 years. The "nonskid" you have growing on the deck makes it look bad but as I can see from the heart you drew in it it won't take but a day to blast all that off.

One of the great things about a project boat is that you can attack it with reckless abandon! My new boat has much work to be offshore ready but is all "nice"on the inside and I find myself hesitant with the big sharp tools. Never had that problem on the wooden boat. Whatever I did added character.

Enjoy! Fixing up a project means that everything is the way you want it, you know where the wires go and how to fix things.

PS I love how the bowsprit is being held on by the anchor.

Rockter will become famous soon enough
Jet-wash it first, and in about 4 hours you will not recognise it.
Don't try to make the ship perfect.
You will never finish it if you do.

Wow, that's certainly a project you've got going there. The good thing is that the hull and the rigging seems to be ok based on your photos. Power washing the top deck definitely did make a huge difference. Congrats on your new boat, and I wish you good luck with your projects aboard.

If it floats, if you can't open new hatch holes when walking on it, if you have the will; you can fix it... Don't let the old ones break your will....
We are young... We don't need a dry comfy place to sleep
Note: Bleach, lots of bleach... Full body cover, gloves, and masks... Or it's a future lung and skin disease...

bwahahaha..... I know. flying down to Florida today with jess to finish stripping out the crap from the all the nooks and crannies and attack the insides with bleach, replace all the dock lines with new ones I can trust and take measurements for a new set of sails and replace the bilge pumps and wiring for them so I can stop worrying, lol. Next trip down I am getting the engine pulled out so I can redo the engine area strip out the old wiring from the boat and paint the area and bilge.... ahhhh, slowly it is taking shape :-)
