That was my thought, though the boat is only really worth 60(ish) bluebook. I'm just not sure what a to account for as a worst-case scenario price tag if it wicked into the stringers, etc... I suppose the survey will tell. The upside is there's no odor as I've seen on a few others I've checked out. Maybe I'll get luckly and she'll only need a little CPES lovin'. Or even better, maybe she's solid.
I do really like the boat, she's a 52' cockpit model, so she provides enough space for living and working aboard without going crazy. I don't mind spending some doe getting her right, but struggle with where my cut-loose point is.
