From the article:

Quote:
Emmet said he cannot afford to carry insurance.

"The boat was worthless, you could stick a rattail file through the deck at the mast," Emmet said.

An employee at a local boatyard began fixing the boat up, and Emmet joined the project sometime around 2005. He ended up buying the boat for $1,000 and dedicating himself to fixing it up.

Orca II is now worth about $500,000, Emmet said.
