and I know well ... I picked up a good sailing Ranger 23 (dead 6 HP outboard) ... with more than 4 good sails ... yes she needed a lot of TLC and cleaning inside ... but still a very decent boat ... for $1

yes ... right place at the right time ... but still hard to beat ...
This is still cheaper than building. These deals are all over the country not just out West, sail or power. Certainly no more physical effort to get one of these up and going than a new build. It has been rare for me to find a boat that could not be purchased for 50% of its original asking price particularly if there is no broker and the boat has been on the market nearing 2 years or more except for multihulls.
