materials for bill be about 2500, system 3 epoxy, 1708 cloth, balsa core, Kiwigrip nonskid material, and related incidentals to complete the roof and rear cockpit.

I know, I priced it all out at Jamestown distributors.

I also know the extent of the work, its my boat.

I am selling, as I really dont have the time to finish her. At the rate I am working on her, it would take me about 4 to 5 years. I have a demanding work schedule and (2 jobs) and I wife that likes some of my time. We are also looking to have kids in the near future, if that happens, I will never finish this old girl.

I would love to keep her, just no in the card right now.

I am looking for something that dose not need near as much work.

Thanks for the info! Is it the stringers in the cabin, or cockpit (or both) that need rebuild?

stringers are fine, no issues there.

Flybridge deck has a aprox 5' x7' section that is starting to get soft, not that bad yet. Also the rear cockpit where the boarding ladder attaches to the cockpit, has a 18" x30" section that is soft.

Other than that, she needs cleaning and updating in the cabin.
