Re: would you buy a 44ft wooden power boat for 10k?

When I was living in Annapolis and working in Baltimore, every day driving to work, I would pass this old boatyard, with dozens of seemingly abandoned wooden boats up on blocks.

Finally, one day, I stopped in and asked the owner about the boats and if any were for sell.

He told me, "Pick out any one you want, load it up on a trailer, and I will sign the Bill of Sale to you for free the second you have it off my property."
On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
