Re: A sad end for a fine boat

I agree. No boat is "easy". I am looking for solid and safe. Why do so many owners let their boats go so far to lose all value and end at the breakers?

Well if you see any 37s that have bones and a willing seller, let me know. Looking to live aboard and blue water. No flash no drama. Too old for that.

Easily? No, I don't think so. Yes, there are lots of neglected boats out there that could be picked up pretty cheaply, if the owner wanted to sell. But getting them into useable condition is a whole different matter, and never as easy as it seems it should be.

Remember that a "project boat" is first and foremost a PROJECT!

True. I'm looking for a boat that I can live on and blue water cruise. Trouble is, my budget is limited. Knowing there are so many out there that could easily be made useful at reasonable prices is frustrating.

Ah Well!

Truth is that if you walk the docks at the average marina around here, probably 1/4th of the boats need to be crunched up just like that. They are not being used, and they are not being maintained. Sooner or later they are going to be scrap (probably sooner).
