Thanks to all for guidance and information for what I asked and that I picked up from just reading the various posts.
I am now the proud owner of a hole in the water. After a year of looking-offers falling though-and lots of toads never kissed I have a new-old allied princess ketch. Buying her was the cheap part. Now the money flow realy starts with the retrofit. Will see if the price I paid matches up against what the projected cost of replacements is- of course mutiplied by a factor of 2 :rolleyes:
I am sure I will have a lot more questions as I discover the "hiden treasures" that she has yet to show.

Goal is to have her on Erie in the spring next year after the ice clears and get my feel back for sailing and what is important in life:D

Still to Come

I have some but first need to get a couple of post in to hit 5 or is that for PM?

I have a nice one of the split rudder and some others from the survey.
One nice thing about her being on the hard for a couple of years the hull is dry;) so the hull strip, refair seal and paint and rudder repair should go quick.
opps not to forget the thru hull replacement oh yea the depth and speed transducer replacement.
Oh hell while I am at it lets put a new cutless bearing in.

Damm what I have I done:eek:
