    If you can afford to pay of 35k in a couple years, you shoulda bought more boat to start with that you wouldn't have to spend more on later. IMO.

    Save your money for your next boat and get what you want next time. Any of these restorations are just labors of love. When anyone sells a car or boat or anything that has been done over they might say they made money, but when you add up money and time they lost their shirt. Just my 2 cents.

    damn thats a nice boat..i just wouldnt be able to get financed for $60k on a late 80's boat.. which comes full circle with the discussion of being able to sell a boat with a lot of money into it and being an older boat..

    I recently did a repower for a guy that has an 86 Wellcraft Nova. He had the entire cabin updated, the cockpit redone, 12 - 15K in the paint and glass work and a new Myco trailer built for it. I dare say, he has 30-35k in the resto and what does he have? An 86' Wellcraft nova that he dearly loves and is probably worth 20k, tops.
    I questioned why, before I agreed to do my part. His reply was, he plans on keeping the boat for a long time.

    IMO - If the boat looks rough, Paint it and do some cosmetics. It won't look as dated. Then enjoy it.
    BTW - i have a 95 32 dominator. Graphics are dated, but I still get comments on how clean it is for it's age. .02 worth
