Can this boat be saved?
I recently purchased a house on a lake in New York and in the enclosed crawl space - cement floor - under the house was a beautiful wood boat.
My husband and I pulled it out last weekend.
We can't restore it ourselves but would like to sell it as a project boat to someone who can.
But we don't know if it's in a good enough shape to sell.
I've attached some photos and would welcome any thoughts/advice.
It's a 14 foot "Little Rangeley" handmade in Maine by RKL boat works sometime, I believe, in the late 1980s or early 1990s.
The fiberglass coating - forgive me for my improper use of terminology - is coming off in many places on the outside and in corners on the inside.
Plus there is about a 7 inch crack that affects two of the wood strips on one side.
I'm thinking it needs to be completely stripped and refinished and the cracked strips replaced but I don't know if it would be worth anyone's while.
