Pay $20k for the boat and dump another $20k plus a bunch of time and you would have what may be a $35k boat.
Yep.

The nature of the boat beast.

As I'm guessing that it isn't going to wnat to come of nicely, in one big easy peel. And it would bite to be stuck (no pun intended) winding up, gently scraping off little shards & strips, on 1,000+ sqft of hulls. But someone please chime in if I'm wrong.
That, & I can't help but to wonder as to how much of a sticky mess, from adhesive residue there may (will) be, too. After the vinyl's removed.
We removed some fairly big vinyl stickers from a boat. A heat gun made it MUCH easier.

Heat gun and Goo Gone, but it will still be a huge job.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Mohave Steve:
One of the reasons I purchased my Crowther 34' was the new rig 3 years ago. The PO installed a new mast, all new rigging including running, and some new chainplates. He did install a used boom. All the sails were used and I'm not sure if they figured in the final price which he said it cost about $10K.

Now if it would just stop raining....

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

So, you live in PNW, and you want it to stop raining.
In January.
In an El Nino year.

Good Luck!

Damn! I kinda like the Catalac 9M's
From my perspective, both budgets are potentially realistic. It is more a matter of how nice it has to be, where you plan to use, and how much work you are able/willing to do. If you have the skills and used parts sources I could see a 5-8k budget working. If it has to glisten and be perfect for extended offshore passage, you would probably be closer to 20k. And I agree that boat does not support spending 20k. Either way make sure it is the boat you want/need...

On Ebay presently are Farrier F27, and Condor tri's. Last week a Woods open bridgedeck 36' cat was listed briefly, then pulled off. F27 is $18K/obo Condor is $70k. Cheers

Good, 40'+ and under $40,000? Your looking for a needle in the haystack. If found, I doubt it will be posted on here. If you find it have cash in hand and ready to buy. They do come up occasionally.
I know that, when I said "good" I meant "good brand", not necessarily good condition...
I can deal with replacing interior and a few more stuff, but I need the exterior to be in GOOD condition...

I'm looking for a boat that can provide:
1. 2 big cabins
2. lots of space
3. Privacy
4. Blue water rated

And all this in a $25k-40k budget

P.S.
Yes, I know that this is a unicorn...

P.P.S.
She doesn't NEED to be a Cat or a tri, but she needs to have 1 and 4 (above) as a minimum...

Thanks all

EBAY: "F27: THIS CORSAIR WAS FLIPPED IN A 120 MPH MICROBURST STORM WHILE AT ANCHOR.
THE MAST IS BROKEN,AND WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED.
THE STBD LOWER CHAINPLATE IS ALSO BROKEN OFF AT THE DECK.
OTHERWISE IN GOOD CONDITION."

Who cares.
40k and two big cabins is not likely.

A while back, I didn't know the term, so I Googled it, and this is the best description that I found...

The ingredients may be numerous, but they will include:

1) a safe boat (well-designed, well-maintained, etc...),
2) a boat capable of carrying the necessary supplies without limiting her sailing ability (water, food, equipment, spares, diesel, etc.),
3) preferably above some lower limit of displacement/length - so that normal ocean conditions will not create unnecessary risks for the safety of crew and the craft,

* by 'normal ocean conditions' I understand anything other than a bad hurricane, freak waves, waterspouts and other such phenomena that we avoid if we know they are there
And I have a captain.
