Project Boat Wanted - Really!

Hi everyone, I am looking for a fixer upper, I have finished my current boat, a 29 Islander and loved the experience. I would love to find an empty hull and go from there, preferably steel but I am open. It seems to be the only thing I can't find with google. I am in southern ontario so anything on the west coast that would cost 10x the price of the boat to ship is out. ( seem to be lots there ).

Thanks for the help!

Paul

Thanks for the reply, I am looking for more of a fixer upper, sounds nice though but $15k is out of my budget by a bit. Are you on a Bruce Roberts?

Contact WHYS. They have a wood hull on the dock they are about to sink or cut up. It's free and a real project boat - it's about 38 feet.
