Just remember that if you scrap it for parts (based on the above comments, I haven't even clicked the link), you're on the hook for disposal of several tons of fibreglass.

I've often wondered if you inverted an abused hull, sliced off the first eight feet cleanly, sliced off the keel for the lead, and put the whole hull on a concrete pad raised up on three feet of cinder block, wouldn't it make a really nice workshop/tool shed? You could recycle the deck hatches to open out of the hull for ventilation, and simply make a wooden or metal "bulkhead" for the front door. Aft quarter berths could hold racks of garden tools, PVC pipe, 2 x 4s, etc. Thru hull could be exhaust ports for table saws, and so on.

And it would last for a hundred years...
