Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

This boat, just doesn't seem to be 31ft Anyway, I'm not in Philly I'm in Bristol 15 miles north. The train from Philly is the Septa R-7 line, it comes right here a few blocks from my house.
This is what I know so far.

It's been about 3 years in the club. I think it was sitting in someone's yard for 20, (don't know) It's been on a club mooring 3 seasons.. he's never sailed it. The only time I saw the boat move on it's own was for launching and end of season pull out. It's gas, not an A4, something about the carb leaking gas. A very young man owns it, but is not a member of the club anymore so... the boat...HAS TO GO I've never seen inside... The outboard is high and I think the whole propulsion approach needs to be re-thunk

People have towed boats down river to the Chessy but that's really slow going.
I've done the trip a few times.. don't even need a chart lol Chesapeake city is my fav stop,free too!
