Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

I would be willing to bet you that the boat, motor, and maybe even the "brand new" sails have spent at least a month (maybe a year or more) on the bottom, and that the interior is just as much of a muddy mess as the exterior. Here's a boat that was floated from the bottom of my river after a couple months, and the one you're interested in is even worse:
