I built a Bruce-Roberts, the first 43 ft trawler
. I've assumed it has low resale value, but that's a problem for my heirs, not me. Someone will get a rough but study miniature ship.
You can find disasterous problems in professionally built boats, too.
The bigger question might be whether you want to take on a project
at this point. I don't mean that the boat
is in project
condition, but that you are already thinking about re-rigging, which is a big job and expensive. Are you ready for that, or would a boat
that is closer to your dreams as is be a better choice?
