The 196/200 is the perfect sized boat - still small enough to handle by yourself yet big enough to take a few of the family or friends out and not be in each others way.

Here is a link to a '92 catalog definition page that explains the "packages" like the Striper

 :PicsNeeded:

A Striper is just an Osprey with some doodads added. Below is circa 1992



As for rigging, that is more dependent on your budget. Along with what you listed, I would add a new fuel tank as well.

Good luck.

So 1500 withy a new fuel tank? Right?  It sounds like a good deal to me.  By comparison, I paid 2600 for my 1979 CCP.  I sold the motor and seating for 600 leaving me 2000 into it.  You can maybe find a hull for less, but no telling how long it will take or what issues you'll find.  If you can riggings it and make it useable for 3-4K you'll have a useable boat for far less than new or even late model used. 

On the other hand most people find they underestimate cost and time.  I did a stringers up rebuild with new everything, but I'm crazy.

The is it worth it question isn't quite so clear.  Only you can decide what it's worth to you.

Agreed.
I sold the original motor off my 1991 WAC and then turned around and replaced it with a new motor. A sizable investment for such an old hull but for me and my use, WAY cheaper than another boat/hull. Was it worth it? To many, absolutely not but to me, hell yes.

Good luck.

Keep in mind that a 1990 stripper is still 30 years old - so she's not exactly a spring chicken!  (.)(.) 

But it all depends on maintenance and how well she has been treated.  Some 30+ year olds look like they are in their 20s.   :72:  But people are usually surprised when I tell them my CCP is a 40 year old.   

Like Bob, I repowered my 1980 22-2CCP with a new Merc when the old one died after 30 years of service - never questioned it - I know what I've got, the bugs are worked out, the wiring has been re-done, and the tank is new.  And I don't have $80K invested! 

All being said - $1500 seems like a good deal for the hull - especially with a new tank.
