New Member Grand Banks

I just bought a 1973 Grand Banks 42 Classic (fiberglass). This will be my first big boat project. She was last used as a tow boat to recover damage sailboats, so the bones are generally good however cosmetically you can certainly see she was rode hard and put up wet many times.
I look forward to getting some great insights from everyone here and getting to work.

I do know that I need some rail hardware, a generator replacement, new batteries and everything associated with refinishing. This boat also has a bow and stern thruster, 24 volt

Looking forward to the adventure
Dennis

Welcome to the Forum!
Sounds like you have taken on a lot of work, and fun, if you like that sort of thing.
Good luck
