I'm going do to Greece
next week partly for holiday and partly for boat inspections.
There are three boats I am interested in the 38 foot range, Grans Soleil 38 (1992), First 38s5 (1992) & Sun Shine 38 (1986). Each of the boats have had some level of upgrades and replacements
over the years.
Assuming the are found to be structurally sound from the survey
and the engines still have some life, what are the most likely big expensives that I could eventually encounter.
I assume replacing the running and standing rigging
would be a likely expenditure, and it is quite likely the sails
may need replacement over time. I suppose there will be the potential of some internal systems like water
heaters & pumps, Maybe the steering
may need new cables
I guess the list can go on and on.
I would appreciate and comments from people who have go thorough this process to give me an idea what the cost would be.
