I was going to work above the waterline. The work on the white exterior of the hull. After thinking about the potential of a fine if I were to do that in the marina slip. I decided to have them do it all. And I do trust the shipyard to do a quality job. They have been around for over 40 years.
If still have to do the fly bridge cabin and deck. The flybridge is solid. Deck will take a little bit of work.

The boat has not been maintained for 5 years. I’m kinda lucky I didn’t get a price of $70k to fix. I would have had to sign over the bill of sale.

I do it all the time! I’ll be there in a couple weeks. Originally from Riverside. I still fish the SD fleet regularly.

You gonna make it a charter operation at some
point?

Passed all my test for OUPV. Goal was for first charter 11/1. I won’t make that. I’d be happy with 1/1. Been doing carpentry for 25 years. Been working towards charters for the last 2...

I was looking at buying this boat 5 or 6 years ago from Capt Ping. Was going to be quite a project, glad to see someone is taking it on!

I was looking to buy this boat earlier this year. Took a look and a walk around. Honestly I'd love to own and operate a sweet boat like that for these local big fish we got. But life diverted in another direction

They had me come up to look at the large crack infront of the transducer. To figure out how to fix it and how much extra it would be. You can still see the original cotton. And that is how they guy puts it back together. I wanted it finished Oct 1 for Lobster opener. They tell me the tenth. I told them they need to hire me for 2 weeks and speed up the process.
