What was the damage that the owner repaired?

Hehe!

When the boat was hauled two engine mounts were discovered broken along with a bent strut and bent props. How I, the surveyor, and engine surveyor didn't notice anything before it was hauled is nuts. Ride was smooth, just slower than expected. He eventually fixed it all along with some other items pointed out by the surveyor and myself. Actually made out better this time!

The name has already been filed to change to "Cool Beans" If "Second Chance" was a bit more unique, I would have kept it. But there are a LOT of Second Chances out there. . .and it is a "boat name", and I hate boat names. "Second Chance", "Sea-duction", "Reel Anything", "Sundowner", "Plan B", etc. . .

I almost named the boat "Monkey Sandwich"

Congratulations on finding "your" boat, I really like the way itís laid out. Like everyone else I love the name. Too many times in my search for ďtheĒ boat I see some really lame names that people have given their boats and I wonder about the tale I heard that its bad luck to change a name. Iím new to the forum and in fact this is my first post. Iím still a long way off from getting mine. Iím a disabled vet living on a fixed income from the VA and social security. But Iím debt free and my VA money goes directly into my savings. So right now, Iím trying to figure out the cost and how much Iíll need to either buy one or finance a boat. If you donít mind mine me asking can you tell me how much you paid for your second chance? Also, do you know what your monthly costs are going to be? Iím sure there are a lot of others who have asked the same question, Iím still searching the forum for information. Iím really happy for you and envious as well.

What I payed for the boat. . .I have it mentioned on one site but not sure if I want to start throwing it out there on every forum. Maybe PM me? Estimate it needs a good $10k in fixes and differed maintenance and some planned upgrades (as long as the manicoolers aren't rotten, but that's still within budget). Just brought the boat home on Sunday and she performed flawlessly for the ~8 hour run down the James River.

Only fixed monthly expenses I have would be slip and insurance. Electricity varies per month and by how much I use. I think most if not all boat related expenses would be "per foot" and need to be figured from the rates of the area you plan to keep it.

I plan to have a renaming party at some point and will make a wine offering to Poseidon in ritualistic fashion
