It looks big in the photos, probably bigger in person,  a daunting project.   Certainly has some nice features for river camping trips, and I assume it would replace the Bal Harbor?  That is a tough call, maybe just prep for winter, finish the 16 v-8 and revisit in the spring.  Didn't sound like you had a lot tied up in it yet, so it could wait.  Any chance of just a quick cover up and drivetrain and splash it?  Save the full-on resto for after you actually fall in love with it?  My opinion might change if I saw it in person I suppose.  I know I couldn't take it on, having trouble with all my projects as it is.

Yes, sadly it will replace the Bal Harbor. Anyone shopping for one of those?

VERY cool boat / yacht !

What size boat is considered a yacht?
To be termed a yacht, as opposed to a boat, such a pleasure vessel is likely to be at least 33 feet (10 m) in length and may have been judged to have good aesthetic qualities. The Commercial Yacht Code classifies yachts 79 ft (24 m) and over as large.

I always thought it was the beam (11 feet or more) that made it a yacht .. guess not ..
I had a 25 ft. Four Winns that the cap. plate listed for persons and gear "Yacht" ?
