This is a hard question so idk if Iíll get a good answer but worth a shot!

Also, Iím subbed to this thread, I canít wait to see what you do with it and maybe one day Iíll see ya out on the Chesapeake! Iím a commercial crabber and go all over so who knows!
lll be 600 in wood (3/4Ē merranti 1088) 1k+in epoxy 2-300 glass. Then itís console wiring electronics finishing work. 2500 pre engine is my guess on my Roamer Skiff 20.

I agree with slickcav, thats about what it took for my 18' center console. Paint, engine, and hardware needs to be added to this cost.

I like how you left a lip around the perimeter of the floor when you cut it out. Clean it up with a grinder and lay the floor directly on top of it will save you some time of building a new ledger in its place.

The cap looks like its in good shape, hopefully you can leave it and the vertical hull supports alone. I spent a lot of time rebuilding mine.

great feedback thank you. My dad has a paint connection so luckily I get that at cost plus I have everything I need to spray it. Engine and hardware would be my biggest cost. Iíd go used on a decent engine hopefully for around 6k. Iím going to make an excel mapping out these costs and if it comes in under 10k I think Iím going to do it

I don't know... there is precious little freeboard on these hulls. I would hate to sacrifice even an inch of freeboard by raising the deck at all. I wish I had known about the extended depth hull cap that Privateer was offering at the time we did my rebuild. I think I would've sucked it up and bought one to extend the freeboard height. Then I could hang a heavier motor off the back (4 stroke) without having the deck scuppers below the water line.

Of course mine's the smaller Retriever model, but I think it's the same principle.

Great work OP!

Completely agree. I would not raise the stringers and tie the floor into the top of the tabs for the reason stated above by SweetD. I would bond the floor to the stringers and tie it into your peripheral tabs ( which is probably all read your plan).

The new privateers have the deck raised about 3 inches. The gunnel caps have also been modified. Made with a slight slant towards the water vs beening flat. Water runs off now
