Depends on what you need but if I can help I'd be glad too.

I'm in SD too.
What things?
Give us a list of the top 10 items so we know the scope of the problem.

I bought a boat with no mast or rigging, no interior, no rudders, has been sitting for the last 10 years, and is really really big.

Custom boat or a rehab project gotten out of hand?

Rudders? Plural? Cat or Tri?

Engine?

How big?

Photos?

What do you want to do with it? Project boat, liveaboard, sail over the horizon?

Re: Anyone in San Diego area?

Its a 52' Catamaran. It was launched in 2002 but was not quite finished. The guy who owned it thought he was going to finish it but he died recently and I came across it. It has 2 perkins diesels and they are both in running condition. I want to do some of the work myself but I am afraid I dont know enough about boats. I will have it hauled out and rudders installed and bottom cleaned and painted here within the next month or so after that I need to figure some things out.

Sounds like the big ones are going to be where to park it and where to get the work done. I can give you the name and info of riggers, carpenters, mechanics, captains (I'm one, although I'm leaving San Diego soon), and whatever else.

Not to talk ill of the dead but what a great example of what happens if you wait too long to go sailing.

Re: Anyone in San Diego area?

Well there is a mast and rigging locally for sale I might jump on. I would like to do a lot myself but I need a friend/mentor who knows the construction of boats. Am I in over my head? I want something I can live aboard and charter out. I like the idea of building my career and my home and building a lifestyle. I am very very excited about this but it is a big undertaking and I do need help.

Make a list,do the important stuff on hull when out of water.The rest can wait.Before you buy gear get a second opinion. Minnies marine for used gear.

The rudders and bottom paint and cleaning. and depending on what the props look like. There might be some minor glass work around the steps in the rear but overall thats the work needed. The rudders are there just need to be painted and installed. I need a tiller arm and hydraulic lines and rams for the steering. I have the manual pump and a wheel.
