You MUST get it moved close to home since you'll be working on it a loooong time. Lots of potential there.

I am, waiting on transport bids. There's a lot of work and time required, but certainly doable. One bite at a time and in the right sequence!

He says he has it all, but I haven't sighted everything yet. I briefly saw the wood, all the rails and large buckets of things as well as the cushions and fuel tank. He said it's all in the garage.

Well, she's all mine, FINALLY! Had her transported last Wednesday to a friend's house where she'll stay while I'm restoring her and I picked up all the other parts/pieces from my friend's garage; cushions, glass, old decking for templates, two props, shaft, strut, rudder, fuel tank, and two bins of parts and pieces!

Now I'm putting my US Navy project management skills to use and planning out the whole project!

Do you have the metal track for the sliding windows? If you have the plastic it is probably ruined by the UV. So you have to find something. Hard to find the metal, but worth it if you can find it. I would start looking for that so it is not a hold up later. Everything else is just money and man hours. I would not try to make it perfect, just safe and close enough to perfect to suit yourself. Decide on the brand of paint and bottom paint. (no copper! ) How you will apply it. ( I used a roller on a extension handle with a screen in a 5 gallon bucket ) Start ordering parts and putting it back together. Best of luck with it.
