I had one lined up in NY fo 45k$ a few years back. I did a spreadsheet on all the stuff
I was gonna do. Went somethin like this.
I would have checked the history
of the boat as much as possible and then go through the boat and upgrade all the items that I was not comfortable with. Remove the facade on bulkheads junction with deck/hull chk , trace the noisy stations/furniture & secure.
Design a lockdown for the dingy locker or delete & alter for extra storage
Run my MM over all encapsulated stiffeners -replace & strengthen what is necessary.
support, shaft & keel
attachments proly move the former, do usual on the keel
Investigate possibility of longitudinal glassed stringers and an extra partial ring frame in the canning areas amidships & slam zone just forward of the mast
, that have minimal support.
Shake her down in trying conditions, alter what I think is necessary for my comfort.
~Pretty much the same as any light weight old boat of any make.
Missus wouldn't agree to two boats. Good move, I have a habit of completely rebuilding stuff I don't particularly care for.
I fell in love with the H54 after a sail in 15-20 knts.
