Classic Boat Restoration

Cool boat. I love these classic wooden boats with the bluff bows. My grandfather had something similar in the old days (before my time, but I saw old photos of it)

It's a For Sale ad, but the pictures show the restoration process. New wood on the bottom. New fiberglass coating on the top deck. Shiny new diesels. Price seems reasonable.

Talk about taking a huge loss. "Owners spent $250k on refurbishment". List price $49k. ouch!

Exterior and work done was great. I would have rather seen the interior see some nicer modern upgrades. But nonetheless a late 1930's vessel is cool.

Neat old boat. Ad says the owner finished refurbing it in '12, and willing to trade to a more "modern" boat. Sounds like they realized they grabbed the proverbial "tiger by the tail" in regards to wooden yacht maintenance and are pulling a 200k ripcord!

Noticed that. I'm picturing some rich guy telling the marina owner to do "whatever it takes."

As for "wooden yacht maintenance," I suspect that with that new fiberglass coated bottom and top, and sparkly new diesels, the maintenance would be much less than most old wooden boats. But, it still has a potential to be a money pit though the pit is already filled with a bunch of money!
