Re: Best country to purchase a boat

I've seen some nice looking boats of all shapes/sizes down hear in Fort Lauderdale which haven't moved from their docks in more than 20 years. I'm sure one could acquire these boats for little/no money or even be payed to take them. Of course the cost/time of fixing these boats is a concern. It might be easier/cheaper to look for a ready to sail one on craigslist in multiple areas. One could also google derelict boats & see what they can find.

I've wondered how much one could buy a new Junk for in Asia.
