Oh, just about anybody can fix up a government auction boat, I am
. It just takes a bit of patience and a lot of time and money. The learning curve is expensive, turn money into dust.
Honestly I think you could find a basic RIB that will run for a similar price to fixing one up There was a running 733 a while back that went for around $20k us and there is a guy in southern cal that has a ready to go hull for $15k I keep thinking fondly of that one as I am covered in fiberglass dust.
