Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'
Well, I don't own a boat - I've only sailed the J22's at my local sailing club. And before I take anything free or buy anything I wonder about how I'm going to unload it when I'm done with it.
Ha, yeah, I thought about that already. I live in a marina now, and we've got some docks that have been condemned by FEMA since Katrina. My friend has moored two of his boats there for three years and never had a problem. I can keep an eye on it from my back porch. If the city/FEMA ends up getting their stuff together and rebuilding the docks, then I might sell it or move to a friend's marina an hour away. At that point I may also donate it to the university sailing team which was the original idea.
