Hey there everyone and thanks a lot for your input!
I don't take any offense to someone's opinion about my boat. It really isn't worth much without a working motor
. I agree.
Now about life plans... while no one really knows, I do have a great job with a great future lined up locally. I really have little desire to sell anything I buy, so I'm not worried about resale value. Maybe that's called hoarding :P
I got a great job at the Port of SF and those paychecks will always cash.
Overall, I think I need to really think about how often I will use an auxiliary motor
. For $250 +extras it may not even be a bad thing to just get my feet wet.
I am currently re-writing the boat and then will redo plumbing
. For parts
and everything except my time, it has come out to about $800. That's for wire, new lights, connections, labels, etc, pumps, etc.
I bought the boat at a steal. I'm not afraid to put money
into it. It's my home and I will have it until it sinks.
I have access to a lot of knowledge and goid people during my Sea scout days. That will be valuable when it comes time to procure anything else.
I have thought about using an electric motor
and just seeing if it'll work for me. If not, I can strap on a small outboard
and use them together.
Thanks again for all the input. Nimble, I will PM you and we can figure something out!
I value all your opinions and I hope to see you guys on the water! Maybe at the next Giants game
