Why not just fiberglass the hull and be done with it?

I recommend "Flex Seal"... https://www.flexsealproducts.com/pro...SABEgI2yPD_BwE


The boat could keep its current full displacement shape and float well.

Looks even better up close. Wish I were in the market <sigh>. Well, $970 million jackpot today...

Alas, I own a boat. IF I were in the market, I suspect I could find a 'free and knowledgable' crew to bring it to Miami on its bottom.

LOL You buy it and prepare it to get underway, I am sure you can find more than enough people in here willing to go with you.

I was walking the docks at my YCs Saltspring moorage and stopped to admire a relatively new boat (new to this moorage). I could find nothing at all that was imperfect. I have stopped and admired this boat several times now, but it is gone recently. My spies tell me it has gone on an offshore trek to Baha California. First to San Diego, where crew will get off and the wife will get on.
here is a sistership: https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/200...owse%20listing

Thanks to BruceK for pointing me to this one:

https://www.boatsonline.com.au/boats...r-sedan/222091

https://www.dropbox.com/s/v2df3fwygh...0crop.jpg?dl=0

My diesel mechanic friend and I flew up to Brisbane, went out on her ("Sea Biscuit"), then spent a couple of hours going over her without the broker being present.

The Perkins has about 100 hours on it since a "full recondition"; it runs beautifully
The Sea Wasp has about 92
All parts of the interior hull are visible (a first on any boat I have looked at) and so far looks fine, apart from two internal repairs
Four water-tight compartments
Excellent teak decks (you can't see this from the images)
She has been neglected for 18 months; been in the water since 2011
Heavily built everywhere; we will know her displacement when she is lifted and pressure washed for the survey tomorrow morning
The images are the least skillful I have ever seen; I am sure this is why she hasn't sold
The Lowrance Elite 7 is a sounder
There's plenty of room for what we want, and she is 40'6" in length

So I made an offer, subject to survey, and that happens tomorrow. She is the best off-shore liveaboard I have seen, so far, with immense potential. If the survey comes back OK, I will report more.

Thanks RTF; according to her first (2003) survey, amended and updated in 2011, she was built to commercial standards for wooden trawlers; when we know her displacement, that might be confirmed! And I will take much better images of her, in time, if the survey comes back sound.
