Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness
Dude, take the boat if it has a lead keel. Cut the keel off and sell it for scrap, scavenge anything that might be useful and cut up the hull for landfill. The money you get from the scrap yard should buy you a decent boat you will actually enjoy sailing.
correct that to: not even cover the costs of disposing of the hull and/or storing the heap while scavenging it.
Why else do you think this guy wants to give it away? I'm sure even BoatAngel wouldn't take this thing. If $350 is beyond your budget, there is NO WAY you can get this done without running out of money.
