Re: Prospective SJ 23 Owner

Hello,   I am having my cushions recovered in boat vinyl. The cost is $800.
I am redoing the entire boat as mine sat for a lot of years and grew mold.
All my work will be cosmetic. There is no rope left but everythig else is
good. mine came on a tandom axle trailor that was used just to haul out the
boat and bring it home 10miles and it never moved again. Depanding on your #
of axles and brake style you can expect to spend up to $500 redoing brakes
and bearings at a shop. Less if you do it yourself. I gave $3000 for boat &
trailor. I hope this helps you. I have seen lower prices on the net. It
depends on location.                                 Rick
