I'm not sure what Dickens are, but I think they may be important and I sure as hell don't want them scared out of me.......Izzy

Not nearly as dramatic as some of the others, but this was our boat when we bought it:



Notice the name VooDoo, which looked a lot like DooDoo from a distance. Now we live in a very small town where everyone knows everyone, so if we had launched the boat like that, our boat would have been known as DooDoo for good. Needless to say we made a change before our first launch.

I like the optimism in having the water skis at the ready. S/V DooDoo must be fast.

Have to drag the camera out. Off the top of my head I can think of 4 boats to photograph. Not abandoned but clearly unloved. Some been in a marina pen over 4 yrs and never been touched yet their owners still pay the pen fee's right on time.

This thread is so sad it hurts ... and I would love to get a boat.
There is a nearby lake - heck, several, within 90 miles of me - with similar stories. One dock comes to mind, I think well over half the boats were left when the owners couldn't pay for the slips.
