Bought her on the hard, gotta get her splashed

I figure every 40 year old Taiwan trawler is an ongoing project boat, I found one that has your typical issues, but looking forward to ICW cruising the loop and beyond with my Marine Trader 34 DC - The adventure is just started!

Not the same boat but if it needs updating they might just be related.

That`s a good set up. Some IG32s had those, cheap running + maneuverability = .

Yes, welcome aboard. Good choice, but yes, you are being realistic - there will always be stuff to do. I can guarantee that, owning one of 1975 vintage myself. But hey, if you owned a brand new one, with not much to do on it. How do you put a stamp on it and make it uniquely yours? After a while you can get tired of just throwing the lines and heading out - well almost. But truly there is something uniquely satisfying in completing a refurbishing project at the berth…and you'll have plenty of those, believe you me...
