I'm a serial boat restorer and, somewhat to my surprise, I find that I've run out of steam on this one. At any rate, here's a chance to pick up a 1990 Pacific Seacraft 31 with most (85-90 percent) of the hard and expensive work already done.
I've spent close to $15,000 on parts and gear and hundreds of hours of my time in the past two years (see the list of new gear below).
The exterior teak has been mostly cleaned up and has five coats of Cetol. Most of the interior teak has been cleaned and varnished. Last winter, I wet sanded, compounded, polished and waxed the hull. It looks close to new.
My broker wants me to spend about $4,000 to have his firm doe some teak refinishing and cleanup and then list with him. I'd rather sell the boat to someone who would like to do the work himself/herself both to save money and to make sure it meets their standards. (I’ll give up and give this boat to the broker on April 1 if she is not sold.)
What is left to do? I think she needs new upholstery, but she'll obviously sail fine as is. The cabin sole needs refurbishing. Some of the interior teak still needs attention. Ditto the exterior grab rails. The domestic hot water is connected to shore power only; it needs to be reconnected to the engine (the hoses are there, but I can't guarantee that they don't leak). I never got around to spending the time on the deck to make it look as good as the hull.
