We had one it was an awesome work platform one of the biggest little boats. Try finding a a 28 that has 10,6 at the transom.Definantly not a speed demon but decent on fuel. Ours had a 150 HP Isuzu diesel 8 to 10 knots. Ours was set up to drag. Should be some pics here on site when we had it up for sale.

I think thats a 41A by the looks of the crankcase breather filter between the aftercooler and the turbo filter can. I think the B's had the little plastic hose that ran from the valve cover to the turbo can for a crankcase breather. By the way where's the exhaust elbow ???

i HOPE IM WRONG AND ITS A 41......I really want to get this as a winter project for fun.....The story I was told was the owner passed a couple years ago and was going to put dry stack....the current owner has all components for wet exhaust.

Teddy Lang used to build boats in Rockland Maine back in the 70's,where the voc school is located.I think he moved to Long Isl ,NY after that.This looks like a handy man special for sure.

We had one growing up. Really large 28' boat. It has a bow like a battleship. Not really Carolina, not really Maine. They were built here in Freeport, NY until he went broke. It was a great riding boat. Very stable. It originally had a Bedford diesel. NA 150 hp diesel. It did 10 kts. My dad repowered it with a 250 cummins b. He was told it would do 20 kts. It didn't ever go worth a darn. I think the only way to get 20 kts out of it was to push it off a cliff. LolIt was a great boat other than that.
Guy who boat it made it a 6 pack boat in the Carolina's. it's got a massive cockpit.

The engine might run well but that would mean it is the only system that I can see that does. Nice glass work on the tabs that run over the stringers; wonderful wiring updates; that's a properly installed 8D if I've ever seen one! Clearly, the maintenance school here is to do nothing until "it" stops and this tells me a great deal about lub oil and engine zinc changes and other necessary maintenance. If you'd like some evidence of my concerns, ask the seller to show you a copy of his current insurance premium!

This may be something that you can afford but I wouldn't recommend your wasting even a dime on a proper survey - just run away from this disaster as fast as you can and leave for some starry-eyed dreamer who will rue the day that s/he ever caught sight of this thing.

I seem to recall a business called North End Marine (or something close to that). Located just north of the business district, was it? I believe that they made a 27 or a 29 that looked pretty good to my eye. Perhaps it was another business altogether? Anyone remember?

Looking for a project boat to learn on.....but that ks everyone for feedback


here's my advice feel free to take it or leave it.

I'm on my 3rd boat full restore

Have i learned alot yes, however i have always enjoyed this type of work (restoring cars/trucks and now boats)

1st lesson. It always cost about 5X more then you think it will
2nd lesson. It takes about twice as much time as you think it will (add more if married)
3rd lesson. operating a boat is more fun then fixing it
4th lesson. If you dont like to itch, dont bother working with fiberglass(and it goes on for days, better hope you dont build an alergy to resin not fun either)

Gratification

when your finally done and using the boat and it work as it should or better.

when everyone stops and looks at your boat and tells you it looks fantastic.
____

Now for the realism


If i were going into a charter buisiness would i buy a boat cheap and restore ?

No it will take to long for a return on investment.

I also wouldn't take that boat you posted unless it was free, that looks like a freaking nightmare. That is a full blown restore, at that point buy one of kens hull and deck kits, you'll be starting ahead of the curve.


good luck

There is a difference between a project and a basket case that needs a full blown resto. Any number you think you are going to estimate on fixing her up. Double it.... then add another couple grand. Unless that boat is FREE and you have a fully set up shop id walk away. There are plenty of cheap diesel boats around that are "projects"

If I remember right you charter and thats why you want to move up. I would look for functional "project boat" that way you can douch her up real quick then upgrade systems as moey and time permits. Are you going to stick to western sound?

5 Min search on yachtworld. 25-36ft diesel. 30K or less. Im pretty sure they are all 1500 or less hrs. Mind you they arent down east boats BUT for a charter in western sound any would work and all would cover running offshore too. I personally am not a fan of volvos but whatever

I looked at that boat a few years ago before the owner passed. As I recall if ou reach under the deck you can feel it going soft. Among the obvious.

no doubt it needs a new deck...it needs everything redone.....The point would be to have a winter project and a beat around wouldnt use it as a primary......Thanks for feedback..
