I have an opportunity to buy a 14’ Meyers Sportspal Canoe for $150. Here’s the deal, it has hung on the side of a garage for years. The paint is oxidized very badly, the sponsons are all but rotted off and the liner is extremely deteriorated. I took it out for a float yesterday and it does not leak. I called Meyers and talked to the guy that does the repairs. The price list for repairs is as follows. Sponsons and liner - $300 Ribs - 24 @ $10 each -$240 (They may not all need replaced 24 is worst case scenario) New paint job - $125 (They pressure test the boat and fix any possible leaks before painting) With all these repairs and the price of the canoe I’d have $815 wrapped up into it. It would basically be like new when done. To buy the same canoe brand new is $1200 so I’m basically saving $400. Is it worth the effort or am I better off buying something else?
