It started out in December when I bought the 1984 Bertram 54 I "had to have". I made my list of items that had to be repaired or replaced while being as cash conscious as possible. My goal was to make the fixup a multi-year process. At this point, we are WAY BEYOND a basic refit as my vision of what I "had to have" became more and more grand. Virtually every issue has been addressed. We are shooting for a completion date of May 15th. Of course, when I say "we" ... that means me anxiously waiting for the process to be finished while 7 or so talented craftsmen work on the beautiful boat. To be fair, I have done quite a bit of coordination, research and planning! I'll have many more photos over the next month as the project nears completion.
