Worth Restoring

Hi there guys i would like to know if this boat would be worth restoring on a slow 4-6 months time basis. There is allot of chip and scratch marks all over but no rotten wood in transom or deck. The gel-coat looks just really bad and oxidized. It would need to be painted.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Interesting hull! It looks a straightforward enough job if you can pick it up cheap. The only problem is it's a Cat, & I've yet to ride in a good 'un From RIBs to cross channel ferries, every Cat I've every been on has been horrid, they are the chariot of the devil

I know its a cat but I can pick this up for only R2000 that is 3% of what a new one cost! I did my skippers on the same boat and it was awesome if not better than my current 5.2 mono. This is the only reasone that I would restore a cat! What type of paint can be used after all repairs have been done to the hull?
