Certainly, if you can get a yards estimate and the seller is willing to drop the price accordingly, it may work. This is a very expensive repair by a yard, so be prepared to be surprised.

You get a survey to help you make a decision on the purchase. It almost sounds like you want to make the purchase because you paid for the survey and don't want to waste money. Trust us....this will be one of the smaller amounts you waste along the way.

Jetdrvr,

I am not saying that you should walk away, just that you have to have all of your ducks in a row before you pull the trigger. The survey is your friend as it allows you an out if problems are found. After you negotiate a new price based on the survey you are going to be the owner. Just know what it is going to cost, as we have no idea what you are offering.

I looked at a beautiful C&C 34 from 1980 recently. Lots of upgrades, prettiest blue hull and new tan canvas, and in pristine shape for a 35 year old boat. At $40K asking price it was probably worth the dollars. Not sure if 15% of that number would do your repair.
