Saw a 36 GB woodie last year in Wilmington, NC with rebuilt twin Lehman 120s..... $10,000.

Nary a bite on it....the 2 diesels were worth the $10,000..... no one wanted the boat.

What does a "salted bilge" mean?

Some woodie owners prefer salt water versus fresh water in their bilge to help resist rot.

Some sprinlke solar salt to make any fresh water present salty.

Jury is out whether its the best practice...but often how the boat is used/maintained determines the best practice.

Several years ago I had 42' GB offered to me for near free... a grand or so and I could have had her. Twin Lehman 120's. Owner died and family could not find a buyer... they wanted to stop paying berth and other fees.

She was a woody. I inspected her carefully and decided too much work needed even if I was to own it for no purchase $$$. Some of the reasons: Dry rot located in toooo many areas. Had original hull fastners [should be refastened]. Fuel tanks seemed more than questionable; probably needed new. Bilge stunk of diesel. Leaks around windows. Headliner water stains. Needed full-on septic revamp. Electronic equipment way too dated. And, I could only wonder what condition the underwater metal parts were in.

Unless an old boat has been very well taken care of the problems that exist may become insurmountable. Especially in a woody... and of course in any other build-out material too!

I had a ‘66 GB 32 woodie, my first powerboat. Very seaworthy boat. Endless work. 7K for this is waaaaay too much. The chines go bad, big pieces of mahogany are frightfully expensive.

Wow glad I didn’t

I have a GB 36 but glass. I had some clue at the difference in value for a woodie but it seems I was still way high.

$7,500 is the starting price. I bet you could get them down a little.

Wooden GBs have a tremendously variable quality, and I know whereof I speak. I would have walked away from the piece of junk Art spoke of above. It takes a special kind of dedication to keep them up and an unafraid and knowledgeable buyer to take one on. I sold my 1972 woodie 42-foot Grand Banks three years ago for 63,000 dollars, and the new owner (whom I hear from several times a year) and I still think we did a deal everybody was happy with. At the time there were wooden GB 42s for sale for 90K-plus, but I would assume they went for somewhat less, maybe not. I owned it for 29 years and took darned good care of it 25 of those years in a covered slip, which makes all the difference, no matter what material was used to construct the boat. I did find some dry rot in the cabin plywood in the early years, but I permanently fixed them and the sources of the moisture which caused the rot many years ago with no problems since - you can smell the rot in a boat so afflicted as soon as you open the door. Many original fasteners were still in my boat's underwater hull, and I removed a few of them for the survey - looked good. Never had to replace a plank and no evidence of chine issues. Boat was hauled every 18 months to ensure the bottom was good. Once in a great while I would have a bit of caulking redone to keep the bilge dry - dripless shaft packing helped a lot. Electronics were upgraded through the years. If I were younger and looking to make a buck, I would take on that 32 in the original post, spruce it up and resell it for a tidy profit. Other than for such a purpose, given my advancing state of laziness, I would not consider a wooden trawler.

Great idea then I could have two boats. One that needs some teak love and another that needs??? Who knows how many boat bucks - and I could sell it afterward for 5k

I love wood boats, but I'd build new before restoring one. I watched as people toil away for years to rarely even get to see the boat in the water and being used.

Speaking of restoration, I once had a diver who was cleaning my woodie's bottom pop up and tell me how well he thought the boat had been restored to which I replied that the boat had always been maintained as he found it that day. That's the secret to avoiding a restoration job, but you will pay the price for a well maintained boat, as my buyer was willing to do.
