Oh what is a poor sailor to do
Okay as you all know i have a cherubini hunter 27, with a dead motor, but i so love the design. my boat is not worth much, mostly scrap prices for the keel, maybe a little for the hardware.
well i was in a marina the other day and i saw a hunter 33 also a cherubini for sale. well i know from talking to the marina owner that the guy has kept the boat in good shape, new ports engine work etc. I also know he owes about a 1000 to the marina, but the owner of the marina does not want to put a lean on it, he just kind of wants it gone. I keep thinking about calling the boat owner and making an offer for a few hundred more than he owes. at least he would walk away with something beside no boat and an empty wallet.
the real problem is i am broke, i know getting a boat while broke is not good but i own a boat now while broke, both the boat and me. I could sell a few items i own to get the cash up, then scrap my boat ( its worth more for the lead then the boat ) and probably come away with some cash, but then not have what i sold.
oh what to do
