Have been looking at a 38ft trimaran
. My first impression was that the boat needed to many small-medium projects so I rejected her....but I can't really get the boat out of my mind. I have heard the expression "Never fall in love with the boat"...but still...
The boat is built with foam as core
material and looks very strong. That is one of the main reason I want to buy her. There are not to many trimarans built in a non-plywood material around. Especially within my price
range and that size.
According to me the boat need:
New Deck paint
Stanchions needs caulking
Pilot house need some wood replacement due rot
(pilot house and bulkheads are made of wood)
New Toilet and hoses
Needs to be hauled out and bottom painted.
(may go with a wheel
job (now there seems to be an additional electrical panels
that have been added with regular glass fuses
...needs to be replaced according to me)
is prob. since 1984 (looks clean...and started at first attempt - will this one keep on runnin'?)
New Trampolines needed and some way to fasten these.
....maybe I forgot something (in that case I let you know)
I don't want to spend a very long time fixing this up. Maybe a couple of weeks. To go or not to go?
