Re: I need advice ..off shore or Intracoastal NJ to Florida
I'm a little curious to know what Jaan paid for the boat.
Winter storage, towing to a working yard, cross country flights, car rentals, gas, tolls, tools, and motel stays could get up to $10,000 pretty quickly.
Then there's the Demo and cost of disposal of interior.
I'm beginning to wonder if any yard would accept winter storage of this vessel without posting a some sort bond for it's disposal should it become too untenable to get it seaworthy.
Local winter storage rates run roughly $50 ft. $3,000 in winter storage.
Jaan, you imply that your funds are limited..( "stay on the boat" ).
Honestly, this appears to be a cut your losses venture. Find a salvor in the area even if they are willing to dispose of it for what they can salvage.. Engines? You could end up saving yourself a lot of money and heartburn.
