ok--you are in the working port of lost
angeles?? are you in wilmington?? or san pedro??? is a difference when you go to look fo stuff. you want to go to wilmington. is cheaper and more plentiful, at least used to eb when i lived there--
500 dollars is a decent price
for a stripped boat--gutted0-mighta been too high, is a way loto f work to rebuild, but you can do it in your own way.
start with engines--seek used , twins and try to get th3em with trannoies and shafts and suxch--look for boat salvage
yards--there should be some remaining in wilmington and san pedro area,despite the modernization anti recreational boater efforts...the tuna fleet and fishing
fleet was on terminal island --see if you can find any of them and be friends with them,as many used arts are arranged like old time marriages , from that place. across from th e fishing fleet there is a marina--al larson marina. should be a world of info there , too--if you can manage to get the boat there , is a decent place with lower rents than most. drive over and check out terminal island from al larsons to across the water there to the old fishing fleet. there used to be a place the fishing fleet used to get parts---they didnt pay worst marine
prices ever--find that place.
find ace hardware
. should be one in san pedro. find used boat parts
places. srtay out and far from worst marine
, if you donot want to spend 400 percent mark-up.
what is beam on that boat-she looks like a home made mod of someone's hull
...willit be stable in the rollers called pacific ocean
? or is she better off in a bay?? when you fin dparts you think you need and they are out of sequence-get them anyway--will be harder to find them later. search craigs list and ebay for parts
and pieces. tour other trawlers for ideas.
goood luck and have fun !!!! in 1990 i bought a gutted and stripped sloop
in wilmington--but i paid 3k--mine had head
and bulkheads and sails
get the book that is the 12v bible--i forget the real name of it .. these guys will fill that in....if you have any questins you feel i may know answer to--is ok to go ahead and pm or ask outright here...oh, yes, and i am a female also....
