Re: Almost free boat

Just start adding up the hours to bring back something like that "Whitby". If you do a realistic estimate you'll keep walking...

I've looked at some foreclosed homes recently. It's amazing how quickly a house becomes a tear down when you're looking at time and materials and boats are even worse.

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
