Think of all the extra storage you'll have where that nasty ol' inboard used to be! This just gets better and better.

And that is hilarious! $3500 for a broken, half-sunk sailboat. Bargain!
No, no, no, its not that he wants $3500 for the boat, he is going to give you $3500 to TAKE the boat. That makes more sense.

At least he's being up front about the condition it's in. The ad could read boat "...resting the bottom at low tide..."
I'm sure he'll sell it for scrap to someone who will resell all of the worn out hardware for nearly new $$$

The boats a lost cause, it's the owner that needs rescuing from salvage and demolition expenses.

That is priceless

Surely the powers that be are breathing down this guys' neck!
"For sale is a 1973 Morgan 33 that has keeled over next to a seawall in Madeira Beach. I bought the boat like this in anticipation of hauling it out and restoring it. However, it has proven to be more than I want to deal with as it is going to require more effort than I am willing to put forth.

When the boat keeled over, it caused a crack where the keel bolts to the hull, making it take on water when I pump it out.

So, if anyone out there that knows how to resolve this issue, you can have this boat for less than what I have in it at this point. It would be a great restoration project for someone with the means of getting her out!"

"great restoration project!"

Yes, and before I shell out a few thousand dollars on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, let me hit myself in the head with a hammer, just so the deal sounds even so much better.
