This was probably a nice boat 13 years ago...

not so much after 13 years of neglect.....reading the pdf of the survey Boatangel or former owner had performed was interesting as I had never seen one before. Someone left a few hatches open apparently and inner liners can only prevent so much moisture build-up...or this thing went down to Davey Jones for a couple days and someone brought her up quick and hosed her down.....

It's a Canadian boat- I wonder what the story is behind the neglect since 2008, and how she got where she is.

Yes..I noticed her last owners were out of Toronto...the boat was listed 2,500 dollars with 5 bids when I came across it...less than an hour later at around 2:45 pm this afternoon it was up to 11 bids and $6,100...I wonder of she'll go much higher..there are 6 days left afterall..but I would be surprised if she went for more than 8 or 9 grand at end of the auction in that shape she's in...

to be honest, I have seen worse boats for sale by owners at much higher prices than the bid or even the survey.

Two or three days of real hard elbow grease, and a few tubes of sealant and you would have a nice boat to use..may never be a show boat, but with the hull and such in fair to good shape...

I doubt seriously that she was sunk as there are no high water marks in any of the pics and the sole is still OK...some hatch leaks for sure

Would be a good flip boat...for someone handy

Thoughts?

here you go...if you can get into ebay later..look at the pdf of the yacht's survey...I never knew they used binoculars to check the hardware/rigging...makes sense though...she's up to $7,100 btw...still might be a good flipper...as Kd said...out of my league on any number of points but it was interesting...

Wow! Doesn't look too hateful. Is this close to you, i'm guessing you would go look for yourself?

Is it really possible to make money flipping boats? Seems like most boats cost more to fix than they are worth (to anybody but yourself).

Not close to me...it's in Maryland...and I agree that " based upon my own research...flippin" boats sounds dangerous Barquito...The boat interior seems it would clean up fairly well..and the engine looks it's age and no more..but who knows...?

No way this boat has been submerged - those are top leaks. The engine and nav station are in far too good a condition for having spent any time underwater.

This is a good buy (from what I can see on the net) for someone with a little time on their hands.

Now up to over $10K, BTW
