There are lots of post and youtubes of restorations.

I lifted the photos from Sailboatowner.
It seems that in the end FRP glass boat are recoverable.
That is quite amazing gary but it does prove the point.
The variable of course is whether the individual has the perseverance to follow through to completion. As we all know that kind of investment in a yacht rarely shows a financial benefit so if one is going to do such a thing it really pays to choose the right design of yacht to start with.

Thanks for the post.

A real credit to him
My Adams 40 was also burnt out, it was sold by the insurance company and re-built as a write off and rebuilt to seaworthy condition. It makes me wonder how the foam core didn't melt!
Long winter nights and cold climate. To cold to go sailing, but if you can trailer the boat home, you have a great project.
