Let me take off that whoever owns this boat
knows nothing about tlc. The boat looks super dirty.
situation does not look anything far from similar designs. In earlier Allegros (built by Acva) there were 11 pairs of bolts with nuts in the pockets of the ballast under the boat. Basically indestructible as this was designed to take rocky ground at small speeds. The gap has to be cleaned very well, dense epoxy
putty injected. The forward bolts (I think 2 pairs) slightly tensioned. To tension them, you empty the pockets. And sure the boat is on dry and supported on the ballast slab.
If the ballast slab is very rusty only blast sanding
and epoxy work
save you from quite some maintenance
chore every time on dry.
I hope you have inspected the ballast bolts which are all visible in the bilge
- these should be pristine. They are easy to replace BUT this is a major job - time, money
, effort wise. Finding quality bolts of the right length and dia is difficult.
forward is probably just and overlay. There should be a proper grp bulkhead underneath. The extra stay is and add on and not done too well at all. Replace the wood
. Use proper marine
ply and saturate it in epoxy prior to fitting.
The small water
intrusion on the main bulkhead looks a minor glitch BUT you want to find where this water
came from - most likely from the chainplates area (these are close to the bulkhead). This plywood
is expected to be quality marine
grade so do not worry if there is just a small blackened area - open, dry, pry a pin, saturate).
tap ... no comment. If the rest of the engine
/ systems look like this ... skip the boat.
Our boat is much older, sailed possibly more sea miles. Looks nearly new ban some love scars.
People who owned the boat damaged her. Do not pay 28k nor anything too close to this. The design is worthy but this sample looks very very worn out.
Expect everything to be repairable - just ask yourself if you have the time, the energy and the money
to be the one who fixes her. Fixing up boats and sailing boats are two different pastimes.
a new engine
a good paintwork 2k,
new woodwork ?,
new pumps ?,
new electrics ? ...
Add up. Think. Do not jump.
Thanks for the write up and the pictures!
