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

Not easy. Bought a Benford 38 Fantail September 2014 for $25k. Have spent 70k (all my own labour) on her and was just surveyed at $115k. I probably could get $80 - 90K for her. Thats ok with me since I knew the story going in.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
