Those cross-members on that trailer look bad. I would test some rust spots and decide if a new trailer is in the budget too

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?

I just checked the cross members and the rest of the trailer and all of the rust is serviceable but defiantly needs a wire wheel taken to it and primed, I guess the navy did teach me something after all . After looking at it today I feel comfortable with the trailer other than the fact it will need new brakes. dodged a bullet there...

Someone deserves and open hand slap in the face for letting a 07 get to that point.

Thank You to all who provided comments about this boat, I put the bid in today and will know on the 7th if I got it. So far nobody else has shown intrest... and this is the second time its been up for auction. If I get it I will be posting a new thread under restorations if you are interested in following the project.
