Hello all! I was recently made aware of a J24 that someone has more or less abandon at my local marina due to their lack of sailing knowledge. The current owner an the marina both want to get rid of it so I've been offered to pay the owners unpaid dues of $1500 and take it off their hands. To me, this seems fairly cheap for a J24. I am aware of a few issues with fiber glass. The starboard side of the fore deck has about 5 different soft spots/cracked skin that eventually need to be repaired. Also, most of the interior needs to be redone. My question is whether or not it is worth it. The boat (as far as I can tell) is a 1983. Does anyone know what these sort of repairs would cost to do myself? Also, would the boat be sailable as is or would these soft spots need immediate repair? As you can probably tell, I am a newbie to the class, and larger boat sailing in general. So, any info on it is very helpful. Thanks!
