Just read your other thread. Guam. Sounds like not a large choice of boats in this category to pick from, so 4/5k a good deal? Well, if it's the best around your neck of the woods for low price - it's foot in the door money.....bit more of a project than for my tastes but if she is basically sound and you are not intending to go OTT and are handy with the spanners etc (and like that sort of thing) then sounds exactly what you are after to fill some time.

Once were thrillseekers

ShadowRWolf,

I have just come back from cutting up my 40 ft steel "beast " for the 2nd weekend in row.I was once in a similar position that you are in now -but much more behind the 8 ball.A steel hull that needed much replating but no one could convince me it wasn't worth the effort.Having said that the hull was floating and it only cost me $152.Today I sold the steel plate I had to replate it with and made a quick $1000 profit.The scrap value for the hull at todays rate will be around $1500-1800 which is why I have bothered to attack it with a demo saw and oxy.!!The old 2 cyl Yanmar will go into a 27 ft Roberts I just bought as will a lot of other fittings that came with it.

The above is just to give you an idea of what you can recoup by selling off the parts if you need to in the end.
Luckily I came across a really beautiful 43 ft Adams that I bought and can put my time into rather than the old beast.This was after I listened to some very good advice here first.I really wanted to rebuild the old girl but in the end I listened to reason.
For what it is worth take your time and truly consider the amount of time effort and money that you will need to put in here.What you consider is a good deal may come back to haunt you hard.Maybe consider to sell off the parts and buy another better suited boat ??
Alternately, never be discouraged by anyone if you have the skills, a brave heart AND a very friendly banker or lots of the folding stuff to throw around.
Remember this acronym.
BOAT stands for:
Bring Out Another Thousand.

Good luck with it.

Regards
JC

this boat is defonitly meny years from the scrap yard she hase been neglected and abused as a party boat. im dedicated and very very good hands on worker. i have a abundence of time and a decent income thanks to all you who pay tax$ to defend the country frome all those evil "terriorests".

the hull is in good shape. last haull out no blisters. electronics will be easy only a hand full of things to re wire and im a electrishion, just have to juse marine grade insted of house grad that seems to be what these retards used. the mast is a ezey fix. the hull is not cored so no worrys there. there could be some soft spots on the deck il find out tomaro the deck is cored teek. the chain plates are new within the past year or 2. there is a half ass repare around 1 chane plate il be inspecting closer but it just looks rough. taped around the all the deck fittings to see if the cor was soft around the fittings. it was good. there may be something leeking in to the cabbin there was a buckit with watter in it. il inspect closer tomaro maby catch it in the middle of a down pore (happens all the time in uam its raney sezon) engin is posible savabull jus have to see what i can do when i get my paws on it. if not im alredy ok with getting a nother one shiped in. il take my mask and fins as well and do a inspect under the watter (my cam is watter proof may have pix if visibilty isent bad)

think thats the end of my rambling for the night.
:-P

Hey Shadow I think you answered your own question. I say go for it.

And thanks for helping defend us from those evil Islamic terrorists. If those pricks get to much of a foot hold we are all f##ked.

Good luck man

It will be a lot of work, but if the hull is solid, then the rest can be taken care of relatively easily.

Shadow - It sounds like you are a good general mechanic and that's imporant with old boats. Don't listen to the naysayers about this boat. It would be nice to get it cheaper but I know what it is like to have little choice in boats due to lack of volume.

You just do a good job of rescuing her and post pictures when you get her all dressed up in her party clothes!

You'll definitely have more money in her than she is worth when you are done but sail her for 5-7 years and you'll get your value out.

Keep us posted on your progress and as you have a second look keep your eyes open for "deal breakers"
