"Some repair?"
Blimey it looks like it's been wrecked and filled with water. Either that or used to house pigs (not impossible in the racing world, I'm told!)
Polishing the starboard side seems futile!

This is really nice, probably the best of it's kind still available! The price is very reasonable; this is the equivalent of a nearly new boat in many ways.

These are a little small compared to a modern 32 foot boat, but it would be a good singlehander or coastal cruiser, imo.

Not a bad price for a big cat! Throw 6 months and a lot of elbow grease at it, and at the very least itís an awesome floating home.

So, figuring time for boatyard projects... You take the amount of time that it would reasonably take (6 mos) and multiply that by 3. That would be the best case scenario. For safety, you take that number and multiply it by 3. So figure around 4.5 to 5 years.

Interesting. This looks to be a near sister ship Arkanoa listed here back a couple of pages. Arkanoa was in better shape, a bit bigger, and cheaper.

I felt the same way when I saw it. She's just waiting for someone to take her cruising !

Haha nah not at all! 5 years is how long a full strip and rebuild of a 44ft steel ketch takes, 1 year for a partial refit of a 42ft GRP cat (thatís weekends only btw).

So full time, 6 months to a year should be more than enough for this one - with the normal caveats that parts are available and itís not rotten to the core😉

Marine Bureau Boat Auction July 10, 2021
There are a number of sailboats here, the largest one that I noticed this year was a Pearson 36. From watching a YouTube video of the auction, I see that these boats go for dirt cheap. If you're within easy driving distance of Long Beach, it might be worth the trip.

That was an interesting video, CaptWho.
A good auctioneer can get blood from a stone!

It's been a while since I watched it, bit I seem to remember a 38'er going for a low price. If they had some larger boats, I'd make the trip. It's a bit of a drive from Phoenix, but doable.

The trick is you have to have a place to put it before you start bidding.
