Boat owner not paying yard, and title of ownership issues
I'm fairly new to sailnet and to sailing, so I hope I'm posting in the correct forum.
Recently, I saw a older boat that I like in a boatyard, on the hard, and it looked like it's been sitting there quite a while (weathered sheets, no sticker posted on boat, but mast still up).
Upon inquiring about it from one of the workers (yard owner was not available), I was told that the boat's owner has not been paying the yard storage fees and that the yard owner "has not been able to get the title." That's all the info. that I have so far, as I'm still trying to get in contact with the yard owner.
What does that mean, and what chance do I have as far as being able to buy the boat?
