Re: Any Information is Appreciated

Well, it seems that the OP, P2P, has done a runner. Let us hope that it is because he has realized the folly of his proposal, and not that he has been busy pumping the bilges of his new-to-him behemoth.

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Any Information is Appreciated

As far as the hull goes, I got a professional quote of 6k to haul it out, clean it, and paint it.

My uncle has raced sailboats for years and has tons of trophies and I had him look at it and he says it's not as far gone as everyone says.

He said the only way to know for sure is to fly up there and see it.

Also, the only way to do it right would be to lease land, live in it and work on it.

With the help of my brothers and relatives it would cost around 84 thousand I think

Re: Any Information is Appreciated

Uncle is correct.Do you REALLY know how and what to look for-I think not.
Sorry but true in your heart of hearts.You'll need FRE FREE FREE land to put it on to do work.Friends family and whomever will help for FREE? Do you have equipment/tools to do refit?
How old are you? Have understanding of diesels?Gardners? Good engines and if you know diesels you have a shot.Are there parts? Oh,thats right-you don't need engines for 79footer ! Lol

Pup,haulout and paint job means absolutely zero.

Re: Any Information is Appreciated

my brother's a professional diesel mechanic, my father's professional carpenter, has single-handedly built 3 homes, my uncle's a former landlord/managed/repaired multiple houses and boats

I can get a lot of help for free-

it may be possible to store it at my mothers, dunno for sure

EDIT: figure it was implied but my father is an electrician, plumber, etc

for me it's more about living on the ocean rather than sailing itself-

My uncle told me I could easily rig it to sail single-handedly but I could get into trouble if anything gets snagged
I'd like a lot of room for family to visit and I'd feel safer in a large boat during a storm

People who know what they're talking about have given you sensible answers to your questions, and you're going to argue with them?

Re: Any Information is Appreciated

My boat is half the size and half the age and 12k/yr would still be conservative for a refit. We have already spent that much, but half of that was hiring work out (I just don't have the tools for an exhaust manifold rebuild) and or "pretty things," like having sheets that fit properly.

Re: Any Information is Appreciated

Let's pretend you can get it ship shape for 50% of anyone else.

Where are you going to sail this beast with a 11'6" draft?

Re: Any Information is Appreciated

Pup, Saddly it seems,you are taking what is writen for your request and benifit
defencively. Look,everyone here holds in there hearts goodwill and positive asperation for you towards sailing.This is why we're here. We have love for sea.
Seems if your entire family and people get involved perhaps could fly.Fly them all up to look it over - each their respective skill competencies.
I have suspicions about hull and super-struture.

I'm finished.

All the Best

I said it could not be done. In this realm, my "great victories" are legion. Take it from me, multiply your refit budget by 10, and it might get you started. You do realize you'd have to ask your father and brothers to work for you full time for free for several years, right? That's the scope of the work involved, minimum. Weekends are not going to cut it.

Re: Any Information is Appreciated

You need to understand how much weight a big steel boat has, and how much power it takes to STOP it from moving in one direction.
No insurance? How will you afford to pay for the damages?

I'm all for cheap and sweat equity, but one doesn't go to the moon on the first rocket built. Get a small boat, restore it, live in it, then when done sell it and get a bigger one.

Re: Any Information is Appreciated

I say a couple hundred thousand dollars and about 6 years and you are ready to go sailing!
