in perfect condition, this boat would fetch probably 50-55 depending on the area. you could re-skin it for about 5k, new engine 5k, gel and fiberglass work is probably another 5k (yes, that gel crack at the rudder is probably all the way through the backing plate), all new underwater gear, 2k, and throw in various repairs for another 5k. Do you have 22k in the bank to blow on something like this?
if you do, great, would probably come out ahead, but man, that's alotta work.
I definately have the time, and have a budget of about 10-15k. I will get some better pics of the hull as soon as I can. I am military and stationed in Cuba, and I transfer in a year. My plan would be to do what I can here and finish it when I get back stateside. What do you mean by underwater gear, new prop/rudder?
