Based on the other "reserves" shown, how high could they possibly have gone? We're you intending to save her from Mr. Gillette?

No, I just wanted to call your attention to one of the ugliest things I've ever seen called a boat!

I was beginning to worry about you...

That said, it'd be a pretty sweet looking boat if you cut off the pilot house and started over again.

There's nothing quite like a well built steel boat, and that appears to be nothing like a well built steel boat.

I love that the winning bid is $250. It's probably worth more than that as scrap.

Very clever device for holding open the top-hinged pilothouse hatch . . .

That's a nice looking sailboat.

Not a very good picture though, that rusty thing takes up most of the frame, you can barely see the sailboat.

(I'm joking! I like steel boats!)

Scrap steel is $4.80 per hundred here. So you figure if it weighs 10,000 /100 = 1000 x 4.8 = $4800 - $250. Go there with a torch cut it up. Minus another $1000 to cut it up. In a few days you could make $3k+ easy
