Seems a like there are a lot of unknows that you need to figure out before you have a clue as to the cost of getting this boat back in normal operation, engine and hull being the two biggest cost items about a boat. The odss are very high that whomever take son this boat ( assuming he won't PAY anything for it) would end up spending a lot more on it than it would cost to buy a decent lancer 36, ready to go, ignoring all the time and personal work involved.

This is a story plays out over and over in this forum.

Funny, you can say the above again and again, but people still go for the deal, usually to disappear from here after relating the first three of four expensive surprises.

I think it depends on what consititutes fun for you. If completely rebuilding a boat is your idea of fun, then maybe this is the boat for you. If sailing is what you are looking to do, this sounds like it might not be the best choice.
I simply must disagree, it is first about MONEY, what you are willing to spend to get a boat of your liking, most of which you will never get back with a subsequent sale. Yes, there can be a lot of fun, and rebuilding can be a valued adventure, but you must go into it knowing that you will pay wildly and probably beyond your imagining, for the ride.
