Chip Ford's 1974 Catalina 22 Restoration Project
Sail #3282  l  Marblehead, Massachusetts

The never-ending project to fill my hole in the ocean while bailing it out

I'd maybe consider selling Chip Ahoy for $15,000
(All receipts are available)
If you think you can talk me out of Chip Ahoy, contact me

The cost for my own hole in the ocean
The running financial cost of a "good deal"
(which does not include the many hundreds of hours of my labor)

SAY AGAIN?
How much does it cost to restore an old boat?  Chip Ford -- who is in the fifth year of restoring a 1974 Catalina 22 in Marblehead, Massachusetts -- appears to be a glutton for punishment.  Not only does he want to know exactly how much it costs, but he's gone through the painful step of creating a Web site, www.chipford.com/cost.htm, to document every last penny spent on his boat.  It's a sobering display that we probably shouldn't even be telling you about.  All we ask is that you don't let it discourage you from tackling your next project.
