Having seen the boat it is saveable but a massive project.

It needs:

New decks, inwhales and gunwhales.
Outer veneer on the transom, or a new transom.
Tank top stripping (easy enough with the deck off.)
Centreboard case reglueing to hog.
Total strip and repaint/varnish.

On the plus side it is - or was - dry and there is no obvious sign of rot. It has a decent mast, boom and combi trailer.

It would be a good boat to save, i beleive she ws quick in her day.
