Is this $400 boat with a twist in the keel a bargain or firewood
I saw a boat, motor (that also needs some work) and trailer going for $400.
The boat definitely needs some work.
This would be my first boat project as well.
Most of the cosmetic stuff seems doable.
My main concern is the twist that is noticeable (I will try to include a picture).
Standing square to the transom, the front 1/2 to 1/3 of the boat is deviated to the right and a little clockwise.
I am sure that most anything is fixable with enough money and know-how, but how serious of a job would it be to straighten her out.
I didn't find any other problems that seemed insurmountable.
I didn't notice any rot (again I am a beginner), although it has just been stored on a trailer in a field in east Texas.
Any advice would be appreciated.
