The Misconduct

Been working on ships for two years. Recently I have decided to get a sailboat and I have picked a challenge. She may be in bad shape but she is mine. Hopefully she will be on the high seas soon Click image for larger version

Re: The Misconduct

Every boat lives because someone dreams. Good luck and send photos!
I wonder what they did to the stern? Were they planning to put in an aft cabin?
Welcome aboard BTW.

Re: The Misconduct

How much did the previous owner pay you to take over that mess?

Was anyone hurt in the explosion?

It floats, that's a start. Should keep you busy for a while. It sure looks busy inside, obviously a lot of history.

Re: The Misconduct

Welcome.

I would suggest updating your profile with your general location and your boat made & model in the "Boat" category. This info shows up under your UserName in every post in the web view. Many questions are boat and/or location dependent and having these tidbits under your UserName saves answering those questions repeatedly. If you need help setting up your profile then click on this link:https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ml#post3308797

If you need further help let me know, I would be happy to.

Re: The Misconduct

Don't let the negative scoffers discourage you mate, a few weekends and a bit of paint and she'll look like new.

Re: The Misconduct

wish you luck..but for god's sake do your sums.

imho you'll spend 2 years hard work + $30,000 to fix this thing up, and at the end it will be worth about $10k

doesn't make sense does it !

cheers,

Re: The Misconduct

What kind of boat is it, Jeff? LOA? Glass or wood hull?

You've taken on quite a project, but I think she'll look as if she can breathe again with at least a good and thorough cleaning, eh?

Also getting rid of all those excess docklines that make her look as if she's secured by a rat's nest of lines...

Good luck with your new boat! Spot (above) and wingssail are at the end of refits and can be relied on for a virtual beer and commiseration as you work your way through the various elements.

Best wishes and Welcome to the Forum,
