Taiwan Overseas Custom 42

Anyone out there with a Taiwan Overseas Custom 42. Doing a survey on one this week. Looks like a nice boat but trying to get some history of build. Issues to look for. 1990

Thanks

Never even heard of such a boat. But on a T.T of that vintage you will need to be especially aware of:

1) Mild Steel Fuel tanks may be ready to fail
2) Windows probably leak
3) Teak decks, if present, will probably be ready for repair
4) Taiwan stainless steel is reported to be of poor quality

Congratulations! Wishing you a happy cruising season! It's still too cold here in Michigan to start cruising so the stay home order isn't affecting us yet. Hope we can all start cruising in May!

Progress on Godspeed II

She has been on the hard now for 5 weeks. We are getting the once in my lifetime bottom job done. Have rerun all the sanitation lines. Replaced all the water intake hoses, old corroded hose clamps. Scrubbed the bilge, Up grades some fixtures. Replaced a couple soffit panels previously damaged by water intrusion - repaired a couple leaky hatches. Replaced rub rail on the lower splash rails. And - starting in the bow have been repairing the teak deck - neglected maintenance stuff. Hope to be back in the water and moving in a few weeks.
