I was at. Carriage House also. I understand they had to rent a large crane for 10 days or so. My boat was in a pile of 32 boats. Cost of Salvage does factor in their decision to total. I had Progressive, their Cat team agent told me it was NJ law about marking the title, but definatly double check. They were useing $120.00 hour labor rate. That adds up fast.
Two part polyurethane top side paint is expensive, but we could strip off the first coat and do it over for a lot less than $300/ foot!
I am in Fair Haven, and I'm serious about helping. Been looking for a new boat. PM me if u start to look. I might be able to save you a trip or two. I am looking in the 28-30 ft range. Several project boats advertized as perfect condition.
