gonna get screwed i bet

hi folks, a real newbie here with a tale to tell...i live in cozumel mexico. there is a sailboat here, abandoned by the owner, who left the country owning port fees, etc...the boat is sinking at the dock. i would like to buy it and refurbish it as a hobby project. my first boat. any advice on where to look for documentation? the supposed owner claims the paperwork was all stolen from his car. irwin 38.2, 1882 model, trashed, no motor, no electronics.... view the uscg doc page at:

I think you already know the answer... walk away!

Assuming the "owner" really is entitled to sell the poor boat, you''ve going to need to be spending big $$$ and lots of time to make her seaworthy again.
