Just curious if anyone still makes a living fixing up old sailboats

A decade ago - i think it was viable - don't think so anymore.
There was an old Endurance 44 in my marina in Florida 5 years ago- several years ago someone bought it , fixed it up ( a bit) and has been trying to sail it for the last 2 years -started at $39K now down to $31K I think he needs to go about 15K less to sell it. Great lines, just don't think there is much or a market for 30 year + and older boats unless they are classics like a Pacific Seacraft or something a long those lines
