Again FF nailed it. Trinidad yards have a lot of skill for cheap by reputation. I maintained a steel hull destroyer as part of the deck ape crew in Nam. She may need work but so what? Get her cheap, if you can fix to a high standard cheap then you will hit a home run.
Steel, welding rod, sand and so forth is cheap. You get her for $125-150, spend even another $100 (might be hard to spend that much) you come out WAYYYYY ahead of the game.
With the coatings we have today steel is great.
