Free Boat? Wooden, hmm, Just come get it? hmm..

Ok, It has happened. Someone has offered me a "free" boat. It's a wooden sloop built in the early 60's. Looks like it is still in good condition and was in the process of being restored when owner passed away. It's a 25 footer and I don't know the 1st thing about moving it. I was told it weighs 16,500 lbs. Sound right? Does anyone have advice on this situation. I have a professional survey done just before it was lifted out of the water, It's been on the hard (unptotected) for about 6 years. Thoughts?
