you give a boat away because that is exactly what it is worth. This ain't brain surgury.
The 'free' boat the OP originally got is now costing big time. So was it 'free'? The boat is sinking, how much is that worth?
You get what you F@ckin PAY for. One can easily get a boat for free, put $20,000 into it to make it good and then have a boat that is worth $10,000. You just paid $20,000 for a $10,000 boat! You get what you pay for...or less.
Boats can be very expensive to maintain, especially ones that have been neglected.
The stupidity around here is sometimes mind boggling
Thanks for the entertainment
And yes dog is right, the original poster is obviously a scammer for all the reasons dog cited. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it IS a f@ckin duck
