Well I took a 4 day weekend and got a lot of interior work done.

Built stairs instead of ladders built 2 bunks for the Grand kids, added some storage space and an overall cleaning and organizing.

I need more time off from work, but need the cash flow.

Well another week of rain out here in sunny California, sure hampers my planned work schedule, so I'm inside replacing flooring all week and building a couple bunks for my grand kids who love coming to Papa's Boat.

Nothing more enjoyable than scraping up asbestos tile and sanding lead based paint, about to wear out my vacuum system.

But I love seeing the progress every week.

I still work a full time job so it can be slow at times.

I Love this Boat, you gotta get one.

We get a lot of good comments from the fisherman around us who watched this boat deteriorate after the owner passed away, it's inspiring to us and drives us to continue the work.

The marina is getting a bit sketchy wanting to take it to the bay area for a bottom job, but I'm not going until I know she's ready.

This summer I pray.

Nicely done!
by: Barb

It must be rewarding to at least get to the place where you can live on her and not see any rust.

I hope all the systems repairs work out as nicely.

We are now living on her full time to free up some cash for engines and electrical. she's a sound boat and is really coming together.

by: Bryan Marsh

So far we have spent about 3 grand in materials, Labor?, crap it's just me and my wife, we haven't paid anyone but an engine guy for an inspection, $200.

Nice buy

Great job!! But you still gotta chage the name to rusty justy lol.

What's the total you spent so far money wise and time? Just curious as it looked like a cool project

I just purchased this 60' trawler built by Peterson boat works in 1953.

She has been sitting for 6 or 8 years.

I got her for $10.00 dollars at a lean sale.

Where do I start so I can determine if its a viable project or a scrap job.

Well I've had her a year now and completed a lot of work (except engine room).

I figured out the hull is wrapped in fiberglass which makes the bottom very water tight, been doing a bunch of deck repairs to keep her dry inside.

I am ready to start the right main in a week or so.

Have to replace the helm pump and wheel, as the scavengers took it the week I got her.

Several gallons of paint and a million hours of sanding she look like a new boat.

We have been re modeling the interior for a cruiser configuration.

I'll post some pics when I can download them.

Have fun, enjoy, its a wonderfull adventure.

I have a 40 ft wooden fishing troller myself, started out thinking "my god what have I done", got to know the boat and restoring is fantastic fun.

Saving older wooden boats
by: Christopher.P

Just by looking her I see she is siting high out of the water.

But you could be leaking in to the bilge for all I know but she looks pretty good from here.

I just I'm really in to older boats I just love them, if you start this job be good to her.

And have fun.

And pull her out of the water see what's going on.

Thanks sir for showing her off, $10.00 Bucks lucky guy.

I'm from Newport R.I. I've never see a sale like this,
Good luck.

Nice to see a picture.

Look for rot, thats a start.

It looks like it needs bottem paint.

Take it out of the water, price a survey, if it's sound then go for it.

Good luck

60 ft boat

A0 lot of boat Justine, put up a few pictures.

Fee comes by a lot lately its the cost of storage and time.

If its a wood boat my friend, just had his hull refashioned, two new planks, re plugged and painted to the water line.

This cost him twenty grand, he paid 3500 for the boat and offered it two me for two thousand.

It became a summer cabin, even though I love wood boats this one's too big.

Do the math then take on your dreams,
