You're a very lucky guy
. Smashed sterns and open holes in the deck
with a fiberglass
over ply unknown construction, and an interior
that needed to be thrown away along with all systems! WOW! Even the guy that got it for the rig is stuck disposing of the "hulls" (I use the term loosly) /mush. If you end up with a good finished product/boat it you'll usually end up recouping $.25-.50 on the $1, especially after you've used it for several years.
It sounds like you have some good experience but I think I'd look for something worht your time and that one wasn't it! I like the Cat 27 Cat idea! haha
I've done several small restorations/fix ups on dinghies, catamarans, a POS bayliner 18, a Columbia
29, and a 34' Formosa
. The only one I made money
on was the Bayliner haha! In the end the Formosa
that had a few soft spots ended needing new bulkheads,a total interior
, all new decks, engine rebuild
top, and still questionable epoxy/resin and build quality. All this from a known (I won't say known for what) builder
... I ended up pulling all the bronze, engine
, crappy sails
, and any wood worth saving and gave it to the yard... In the end someone actually bought it too, poor guy! I guess I should've cut it up to save someone the trouble!
