That is a great idea.... particularly if you own the boat yard that is doing all the work! you got 100k into a boat with out everything else it may most likely need such as sails
, new rigging
work ect. another 40-50k and you still have a boat worth about 30k . This is the reason these boat are on the market for years! nothing should take more than 90days to sell if it does its priced to high or its not worth fixing no mater what the price
Hear in New /England the paint
rates at the most expensive boat yards is $250 ft... still to much to invest in a 30 year old tired boat.
I was only giving my opinion to the first fellow as have been very involved in sailing/racing since a very young child. I have owned a Newport
41 since new in 82' and had it for 23 years, fully aware of what boats cost to keep in yacht like condition.
Their are lots of old boats out their that do not need to be rebuilt, and the new owners can take them sailing with family
and friends and not be laid up in a boat yard with massive bills.
