If you are going to sell it then just sell it. If you are going to keep it then do what you have to to get it to be reliable for the season then tackle the other stuff over the winter. Restoring it to sell it a bad idea you will loose even more money. IMO

It's a great boat that you won't see at every marina you dock at and a wave crusher. With the market like it is, you'll probably lose big money if you sell now finished or not. Do the absolute minimum to get the engines running this year and finish the dash, then take it out and enjoy it.

If you want to sell it later, I would wait for the market to get a little better if possible.

If you are thinking of selling it, contact kirk and get an offer.
At least you'll know where you stand.

Sounds like you just need a vacation................

Just out of curiosity, if time and $ were a factor, why didn't you start with the mechanics first, and then do the cosmetics?

I dont know why I did the boat the way I did it, I thought it made more sense to do all the paint and boady first, when I bought the boat everything worked, I did not think it needed as much motor work as it did
