    Default Walkabout?

    Seen on Seattle CL: https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/b...603403129.html Too bad he didn't post it before the epoxy got knackered.

    Good deal. The build is probably fine.

    If she was built of Aqua Tek (meranti) I would bet she is fine.

    Holy Sh*t == suchadeal! As Bruce says above, much depends on the condition of the hull material...

    Navigator, not Walkabout.
    The third pic, looks like a puddle inside. Not a showstopper if it's rotten - I found the ONLY rock in the local lake with my Pathfinder, and had to cut out about that much crushed ply and scarph in a new bit.
    $500 would still be a good deal, if that was its only major problem.

    There are very few problems that cant be fixed with plywood, epoxy and glass cloth.
    That partly completed project would be a bargain for someone handy enough to finish her.

    Well....somebody finally adopted the project. It was a bit far afield fr me, and my wife would have had little kittens if I brought home another project
