Hi and welcome to the forums. Argosy's are cool - but I may be partial....

We have an Argosy specific sub-forum and lots of help here. Make friends with the search tool on the blue tool bar and keep us updated on your progress.

Another Argosy, good for you. Have a 78, 24ft and love him. Didn't have to do the major repairs, but have invested a lot of time and $ to restore what was just "old". It's a fun project. Take you time and enjoy. It's kind of a downer when it's all done.

I don't think Janet's biased. I've been in her Argosy, and it is pretty cool! Good luck with your new project. I was in the same spot three years ago. I didn't know much, but now I've replaced floor, axel, and appliances. You'll be replacing windows and running new water lines in no time!

Welcome to the forum!
