The problem with many of the repo and confiscation auctions is that you don't have any warranty and must generally accept the boat AS IS. This means you don't get a chance to survey the boat, and don't have any real idea of what condition it is in. Many of these boats go for very little money, but are not really a bargain, since you could often have bought a decent boat for what it will cost you to rehab the auction purchase.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
