Hi all, I am curious about your opi9nions. Is a 45 year old fibreglass boat, let´s say a Hatteras 58 Yachtfish, still worth doing an extensive refit, updating the electrics, full paintjob and redesigning the interiour (while keeping it mostly original of course)? Don´t try tot talk me out of that idea, it´s slightly too late, just jumped into it with both feet. However, let´s say a very original one without inadequate modifications like white painted walls, wallpapers and such disgusting stupidities, just more recent engines and, unfortunatelly, a slightly messy electric system with questionable details like breakers and fusses all over the boat in areas you would not even expect and inacceptable battery chargers and such. All repairs during the last let´s say 10 years, were done technically correct for themselves, however not in conjunction with the big picture and were done without a valid concept behind. The vessel had good times in the same family for 40 yearsreceived plenty of appreciation and attention like new engines and a very nice all new galley about 20 years ago, but probably spent the last few years as a backyard queen in a marina in Italy. Old owner was not a do-it-yourself-guy and had to pay someone for every job so many things that would have been reassonable were not done. On the other hand the boat has pretty recent electronics (with all the old outdated stuff sitting next to it and partially interfering, for example the three autopilot units.) Do you think a vessel would still be worth to be refitted to a good modern standard? Or is it a complete nonsense project comparing all more recent boats which can be had for reasonable money today?
