Adding up the scrap
Let'sassume you have two main and two cabin top non-self tailing winches on that thing in reasonable shape. Lets say the main ones are two speed Lewmar 16s' and the other two are Lewmar 6 single speeds. Right there you have 4 to 5 huindred on ebay. Pushpit and Pulpit and stanchions in reasonable shape, probably another 150 to 200.
Compass 75 to 100, depth sounder 75 to 100, speedo 75, wind speed/direction 100. Batteries, if good 50 bucks a piece, for lead scrap: few bucks. VHF in working shape 35 to 50 bucks.
Let's say you have 700 lbs of clean soft lead in her keel that's pushing 1400 bucks by Spokane recycling prices.
Bilge pumps 10 to 50 bucks depending on type, bronze thru hulls, a few bucks a piece, Prop...over a hundred bucks if in good shape, prop shaft, for the stainless alone maybe a 30 bucks. Cleats a few buck a piece depending on material. Stove? Sinks? Head?
Inventory the running rigging, turnbuckles, etc. depending on size and condition heck a snatch block will bring over sixty bucks on Ebay. Whilemast may be scap, it'seasy money to transport in cut up sections
Maybe I'm optomistic, but you could come out way ahead and it would be gravy once you swap the engine. Costs may be a tow to a working yard,and rental of truck for trash transport, a case of beer for the yard manager, couple of hungred tolift boat on hard if no trailer...Oh did I say trailor? Ka ching.
