I occasionally see boat hulls for sale where it seems like the owner just wants to get rid of it and offers it for something like 500 bucks. What are the costs involved in renovating a boat? Before I ever took on such a project I'd want to have some idea of what I'd be spending.
So far I can think of the following things: (This would be something like a flats or a bass boat BTW)
New decking...wood, aluminum or some other composite
Recarpeting or some spray in liner
Minor fiberglass work (I wouldn't mess with anything that required extensive repair)
Resurfacing the outside of the hull...paint and gel coat
New stainless hardware
Anything else? Of course I'd have to power it with something but I'm already familiar with those costs as well as the costs of doing any trailer work required.
