Request advice on bare hull on Ches.
Hi Sailnet Community,
I am a new member (and lubber) with a couple of questions.
Saw a post in this thread about GA v. SC tax so I thought to post here.
I have a 53' bare hull ( no deck, no hull ID ) sitting in a marina on the Bay. Foolishly, I had bought it unseen a couple of years ago.
It was advertised as solid but it is cored.
It has 3 gashes below the waterline unadvertised
It was advertised as 18' beam which presented real problems trying to move it over land but it really turned out to be about 15'.
Now the State of VA is requesting tax money and I would like to know if it is taxable and if so, how much tax ( if any ) should expect since I only paid $3500 for it.
As an aside, I had found out online that the Marina had been accused of sinking a boat ( about to be sold ) at the dock. They strike me as not the best of motives.
Finally, if anyone has any movers to recommend perhaps they could email me, should I not abandon the Project altogether.
