Having been away from sailing for several years, we started looking for a boat to get back into it.
After some time we located a boat( Paceship PY23K) we actually owned for about 20 years.
It had not been taken care of nor had been in the water for about 8 years.
The marina wanted it gone and in a moment of nostalgia we trucked it to our home and a local crane operator set it beside the lower garage.
I was doing fine with the restoration until finding a bit of core saturation which is being addressed now.
Looks like this summer will pass without the boat going in the water.
I have followed this forum for some time and have been impressed with the depth of knowledge and the willingness to share.

Welcome to the forum. I've been there...ugh! Lots of threads addressing this situation.

Welcome and I too returned after a hiatus! Too bad you can't find a little trailer for her, she's not too big. Is the core saturation in the deck or hull? Sure you can't get her out this summer? Good luck in any case! Join the Plastic Classic group, maybe someone over there can be of help too

Fortunately the hull is solid. I discovered the deck problems rather late before wrapping the boat for the winter. Not that it does a lot of good , I drilled a lot of holes to discover wet areas and maybe help dry things a bit.
Cold and wet until a short time ago and other projects has prevented much work on the boat, but I getting going now.
The fellow who owns the crane company has a trailer I might modify. This is a keel version and would still need to be lifted.

Thanks for the interest and the heads up on the plastic classics.
