Re: Floated off the stands

Your engine has become a mooring block, one big hunk of rusting steel. At the most you have hours in the low hundreds if not less before it is locked up and dead. That's best case.

If you have a lot, and I mean a LOT of upgraded stuff like winches and other high price items it might make sense to salvage, or a buyer lined up of course. Otherwise you are paying storage, then possibly cut up and haul away fees.

Consider your choices carefully, from the wallet, not the heart.
