    I have spent nearly twenty years of my life repairing old boats for a living. All I can say is ...Don't do this to yourself!

    Re: Anyone like old boats?

    All boats are money pits.If that is a wood boat.get yourself a ice pick.Swim under the boat and start poking it with the ice pick every foot.If the pick goes easy into the wood more than 3 inches,then you dont want that boat.

    If the pick goes all the way through, you will put the boat out of its misery.

    Re: Anyone like old boats?

    I'm in the process of "restoring" a 1971 31' fiberglass Chris Craft. That's bad enough. I love old wooden boats, but restoring one of them takes a special kind of person. I'll ask my friends at the asylum is any of them are interested.................

Do you think this boat is worth $4000 never pay the full asking price right http://pensacola.craigslist.org/boa/853660312.html

    Re: Anyone like old boats?

    For a 21' boat a 150hp engine would be adequate. But that boat is worth only $1,000. I found a 1990 28' Renken cabin cruiser with a 350 I.O. for FREE! It sank at its dock (so the engine needs to be rebuilt) in a fresh water river and the owner just wants to get rid of it. If you want a real bargain, look around the Galveston area.

    RELIC,

    If you're looking for a boat just let me know what you're looking for (length, features, equipment, etc). I work with a ton of service men out at the base and there's always several for sale that you won't see advertised. They've got a pretty good boat market simply by posting stuff on the bulletin boards around base. If and when you find something you're looking for, just let me know and I'll be glad to go take a look at it with you.

    Re: Anyone like old boats?

    Those are nice boats FE !

    Got a prob here on the left coast with the ocean being shut down for so many months of the year by the gubment. Maybe could sell 'em down in Mexico?

    ...There's a nice boat shop along the highway here... been there forever.
    Great reputation.
    They got a HUGE inventory of new boats up for sale this year.
    ***and the DUMMIES went and put up a large red letter on white sign saying

    "Bank Repos Sold Here"

    I dunno!

    Re: Anyone like old boats?

    me and my dad rebuilt a 24' owens one year and I redid a 1956 arkansas traveller a few years ago. my next project is building a small shoal draft motorsailor. I have the mast,engine,anchors,windlass,sails,lights,filters, etc,etc. government liquidators just sold a 37' lifeboat that would have been a perfect hull for the project but money was not available. I suppose I could have sold something but I hate doing that.

    it went cheap too.
    them that dive will be the lucky ones !!

    Re: Anyone like old boats?

    That sounds good, WT... adapt something....

    I once passed on a twin engine sportfisher that was in very poor condition.
    Later, it dawned on me that I could have just sliced the bottom of the hull off and had a smaller, more suitable craft that would only be in need of a superstructure and re-power.

    A fisherman at a nearby harbor did a ferro-cement skin over an old fishing boat, a couple years ago.
    The wood hull was unsound, and he covered it with layers of re-bar mesh, then mudded it.
    It came out real good.

    I'd like to have something like Joshua Slocum sailed around the world in. Can't recall the name of his boat, at the moment.

    Then there's the St. Pierre's Dory. Plywood boat that can take a drop keel and a mast.
    Good project for a small diesel.
    A St Pierre's Dory has never been lost at sea for design failure!
    Very stout design.

    Re: Anyone like old boats?

    joshua slocums boat was called spray . our freinds up north make wooden boats and cover them with fiberglass. you see alot of this technique around nova scotia. several are for sale cheap at scruton marine. I have thought about removing the keel of a sailboat and redesigning it. oh well right now money wont allow. how big is a saint pierres dory ? my diesel is 67hp pisces indenor.

    have a good one rmptr
