Storm boat?

Hi all, plz forgive my lack of knowledge.. I'm still working on various options to buy a boat in the next few months to 2 years..

I asked about transferring masts between boats.. Seems it can be done.

There is a 97 beneteau oceana 321 (?) up for grabs without mast, says "transom" needs replacing.. Interior very good.. Motor has been picked.. ?

What wd replacing the transom entail? Probably took a beating

I love the layout and int space.. I am quite comfortable tackling this, I've worked with fiber glass and am very mechanical .. Rebuilding engines and welding, fabricating and so forth..

Just curious if I could end up with a very suave boat after some hard work? Obviously I'd get a proper survey done on the hull at least IF this could be a potential option..

Re: Storm boat?

There is no way to tell what replacing the transom entails. It could just be holes and need patching, or the entire stern of the boat is missing.

And without a mast or engine this boat had better be free.....between time,effort,cash this boat will cost ore than one that's ready to go now.

Re: Storm boat?

I think the transom is there, I only have a sideshot for now.. I'll get more info.. Assuming it's holes/cracks only at this point.. I think it took a knock, if it was missing the int wouldn't be very good lol, it'd be soaked etc.. I'll try get more pics/info..

Give us something to work on.. photo's can speak a thousand words..
As stated damaged transom could be anything from stern stove in hitting pile mooring in a blow to being ripped off on a reef..
Likely also involve damage to rudder and mechanism..

Run away as fast as you can, its a storm damaged boat, he loose mast, stern, and probably dozen other things, the STB side is deflected with damage, I don't know if he fall from jack stands or worse, engine gone since I guess water intrusion inside of the boat make damaged to, just to make you a estimate, only the mast, rigging , sails etc,, could be 40000$ up,,,,

Re: Storm boat?

Save your money and buy a complete boat. It seems you do not have the talent yet to attempt a project like this. If you don't have the where with all to buy a functioning vessel. I would say you should stay out of boating until you do. Dreams can turn into nightmares with a signature on a check.
