This is a thread about a boat I just purchased. Though the title says it's a 1962 I feel this is a typo that it is actually built between 1970 and 1975 Hull
In this thread I will go through the various projects the boat needs and post repairs
made. I have already started making it sea worthy.
The very first thing I need to do is a thorough cleaning
of all cushions
,lockers, etc.... The boat was previously owned and lived on by a 81 year old man that could no longer maintain it properly so there is a lot of disrepair and flawed repairs
Some of the repairs needed and planned maintenance
1. Thorough Cleaning
inside and out.
2. Upgrade Head
and add holding tank
3. Get engine
running if not locked up remove completely if locked up.
4. Rebed all Stancions, Chain Plates, Cleats
,Chocks, and Rails.
Decks and Hull
6. Add a wind vane
7. Replace all Halyards and rigging
8. Additional water storage
9. Replace the electrical system
and add electrical charging equipment
This is all just off the top of my head
right now. Some things are going to change and this is by no means in any particular order.
Please remember this is a boat that was built to go anywhere and that is what I am Getting it back in shape to do over a five year period.
The ultimate goal is a world cruiser that is able to go on $500.00 a month or less.
