Electric fences for one??

Or a cattle prodder to make them move?

This boat has obviously been sitting quite a long time. There was also a mysterious steady water drip coming out of one of the thru-hulls even though it hadn't rained for over a week (though it was the first day above freezing for a while).

I'm surprised that Raw Faith has not shown up on the list yet:

Clearly the bright orange "snow fences" didn't do much.

It's a wonderfully clear photo, TAK.... nice job. Feel for the owner, though.

Holy canoli bl. That's precisely what you need to push that thing away from the dock. Are those shingles?

smack, you're close. Apparently, much of Raw Faith is constructed from salvaged skids.

Much of the story can be found here:
Raw Faith - Page 6 - The WoodenBoat Forum

Apparently the builder is the Jim Bakker of boatbuilders.

I had totally forgotten about Raw Faith. Having worked in Rockland for a number of years, everyone kept hoping that it would leave either by going under or getting towed back into another port next time it got rescued. It is a surprising hazard because its mooring must have 750' of rode so any anchored near it in a wind shift gets hit.

Thank Heavens people neglect boats

That's allowed me to buy a 1981 30' TMI for under eight grand (2 years ago). We also know there are even better deals around. Courtesy of the economy, I'm sure had I waited she would have come my way for about three grand.

bad times for selling great for buying

Unfortunately the majority of boats we've seen on this thread that are victims of neglect have been neglected to a point well beyond where they could be restored to acceptable condition without spending more money than it would cost to buy a comparable vessel that had been well maintained all along. It's actually quite rare, even in this economy, to find a boat neglected enough to be a good deal but not so much that the low price is no longer a good value. People can be amazingly stubborn about lowering their price. They'll let the boat a fall apart and pay several times its worth in storage or slip fees before giving in.
