I did stop in annapolis, spent two nights in the van parked down in easport, close to the maritime museum. Great city, great fried oysters, however the cheoy lee I had my I on in annapolis sold a few days before I arrived so i moved on.... did shop a couple yards, saw one i liked, old demasted henkley i think, folks said they were asking 49k, said no thanks and went on my way.

"will need good marina for working on boat,"
First you'll need to have it trucked there! Another minor expense to add.

did a little research, seems i could be paying about 300 in trucking fees... what should i plan for financially when the boat arrives at a working yard? lift fees? stand fees? etc... myself being a paraplegic it's ideal i get the boat in a floating slip, then i can crawl/work over and inside the boat. i'm wondering cost wise, when the boat arrives at the marina should i be planning on getting prop, threw holes, and paint all straightened out quickly and have it hauled into water asap.... or should i plan on keeping it on hard for a few months to get this done... basically what i'm thinking is a sequenced plan to save money on lift and haul fees. getting the boat into the water so i can begin doing as much work as possible myself.

Thank you. Sounds like my best bet is to get up there, take a look and find someone to talk with in person. there's an auction in may, but they list the boat with obo prices so maybe they're offered earlier than the auction date. thanks again.

jordan-
with a "sealed bid" sale that means nothing gets sold before the date of the auction. You put your offer in a sealed envelope and throw it in a box, and on the auction date they open all the envelopes. Highest bid for each boat wins, unless there is a reserve value that hasn't been met, in which case the boat stays unsold.
Bear in mind you are probably buying "as is" and you can take a bath on a used boat if you, or a surveyor, hasn't gone over it in detail.
While accessing a boat on jackstands might be hard for you, any work on the thruhulls, prop, shaft, cutless bearing, bottom paint, all need to be done before the boat is dropped in the water. Yards usually will supply jackstands (and charge for them) and the chaos of spring launching starts soon. After that...rent on the hard should be fairly cheap compared to rent in the water. Launching or hauling will cost each time as well--and until most of the stored boats are launched, scheduling will also be tight. June 29th will put you past that. The MMA *might* be able to make some acomodation with you, i.e. to allow you a short time to make bottom repairs, if needed, after you've paid but before you've taken it away. It can't hurt to ask. And to confirm their auction terms at the same time.

Does anyone have any yard and/or slip recommendations for this area? I'm buying a project boat, do it yourselfer, want to pay the minimum in fees and hopefully have 24hr access??? I'll post tomorrow after I view the boat. Thanks all!
