Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

It's back up on evilbay! What's up with the deck? Does it have teak decking in spots, or did they try an simulate a wooden deck in fiberglass? My guess is the picture are from before it sank also... Can you tell my boats are put away for the season?

Or it sank and then it was powerwashed to make it more presentable - either way (and I rarely say this) don't walk - run from that boat. Looking at it I doubt if there would even be much to salvage.

Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

Ron, I agree, I think that was pre-sinking. Notice that the hatch is in place.

Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

I just noticed the ebay ad has a link for "more pictures." My throat starts to burn just looking at them. And based on the fact that the hatch is magically restored, I'd say these pics were probably BEFORE the boat (apparently) sunk:

We had a house boat sitting for over 10 years someone finally got it and took it away. YCs are always getting stuck with boats. Ours is typical that way.
really? hmmmm maybe I should check around with local yacht clubs....

yeah. the boat looks much worse, now. it still had the hatches in those pictures. I suppose this guy really screwed it up worse than it was. he did find the title, by the way.
