The current owner hauled the boat after I sold it, rolled it with grey paint, added spray painted riggers, a fighting chair, helm chairs and a house A/c. Not how I would have done it...

I know he is in the process of rebuilding the mains so he will need props at some time

Scanned this post from the beginning during a conference call. That's one hour of my life I'd like to get back. Then again - I am strangely curious as to the on-going life and times of the Wanderer/Double Down/Thursty Turtle. My guess is that she either catches a world record marlin or ends up at the bottom of the sea. This boat is overloaded with vibes and juju.

Judging from the ''quality'' work that has already been performed I would venture to guess the interior will be finished with paneling from Home Depot and furnishing from Rooms To Go.

For under 100k the guy will have a ghetto'ed out multi million dollar floating condo!

Looks like he filled the holes in the transom with joint compound from homey depot
My dog could have done a better job!!

Ouch, thats tough to see! I'm sure you can't comment on this, but is the new owner just lipsticking a pig to make it functional or is he spending big money and doing it right?

rolled a multi million dollar boat with gray paint, added spray painted outriggers, a home a/c unit to the cockpit, filled the outboard mounting holes with putty and you gotta ask if this is being done right???

Someone has to ask? Yes I have a feeling we all know how the "restoration" will go based on the description of the work and the one photo shown.

Once she went down during hurricane Sandy she was no longer anywhere close to a multi million dollar boat.

It would cost close to that of a new one and definitely more than a nice used one to get this thing ship shape. Unless you have solid connections no way this boat could get back to yacht quality.

Remember the Jim Smith that caught on fire, or similar, years back? I think it was named Savanah Summer? she was sold off and is now a tow boat see below pic. Point being these once multi million dollar boats are done for when a major "event" happens to them.

Wow
That Jim smith would win the ugliest Boat thread.

Actually, might be one as ugly. But that's the biggest travesty and crime again maritime beauty

I get that, question was asked if the owner was spending big bucks and doing the resto right?

A lot smarter (maybe) people than me thought they could make a ''yacht'' out of her once again and we all know how that ended.
Just sad to see that it's being given the trailer park treatment. At least a bit of effort and $$ might have made it a presentable dock queen and a nice weekend condo.
For what's being done to it now he could have just stayed with a newer pair of outboards and at least been able to get away from the dock for reasonable money.

Wonder if you could have concealed outboards in the cockpit fairly reasonably. At least you would look somewhat presentable on the water

Still has nice lines if you put your finger over that hideous doghouse.
