What would you do?

FWIW, the GB36 rebuild would not be a project for us.* It would be a total turnkey operation.* "Here's the boat,*we want it*back in a year with x-things done to it."

Good points all in your post, but remember, we got into this kind of boating without intending or*expecting to get any of the money we spend on boating back. In this respect, our boat is no different than my fly fishing gear.* So the money spent on rebuilding the GB36 or the money spent on an FL55 or GB46 would be "gone" money.* Hobby money. *So resale value does not factor at all into our decision.

It probably would in most other people's, however.* Hence the question--- would you fix up your current boat or spend the same amount of money toward a different boat?* The amount can be whatever it needs to be to fix up your own boat--- $10,000, $100,000, whatever.*

I'm interested in what you guys would do, not what you guys think we should do.
