Re: Question for experienced boat owners/sailors

And a highly-recommended boat monkey,not just someone from Merry Maids. That propane bottle, rusting away and feeding two long lines into the boat, to what look like two old bbqs (instead of an oven) plus a bare gas lantern?! That's scary.

OTOH there's probably a lot of small stuff that could be mistaken for garbage, which should be kept, bt would need to be cleaned and stacked. Surely there's a local broker who is smart enough to do the whole job, hire the monkey, sell the boat, make things easier for a remote owner?

But seeing the propane tank, I'd suggest speed, before the USCG or someone notices and declares the vessel to be a danger, then hauls it away. Or some seacock or hose gives way, and the boat becomes an expensive salvage bill instead of a small sale.
