Re: I need advice ..off shore or Intracoastal NJ to Florida

I'm a little curious to know what Jaan paid for the boat.

Winter storage, towing to a working yard, cross country flights, car rentals, gas, tolls, tools, and motel stays could get up to $10,000 pretty quickly.

Then there's the Demo and cost of disposal of interior.

I'm beginning to wonder if any yard would accept winter storage of this vessel without posting a some sort bond for it's disposal should it become too untenable to get it seaworthy.

Local winter storage rates run roughly $50 ft. $3,000 in winter storage.

Jaan, you imply that your funds are limited..( "stay on the boat" ).

Honestly, this appears to be a cut your losses venture. Find a salvor in the area even if they are willing to dispose of it for what they can salvage.. Engines? You could end up saving yourself a lot of money and heartburn.

I don't think there is a yard in the US that doesn't have abandon boats on it. They must be dealing with it somehow. The OP may be able to get in on their disposal program, as opposed to just abandoning it.

Scrapping the boat not as turn key as some might think. Every fluid in that boat is a haz mat. As well all the paint varnish etc etc. That said, you could give it a shot. offer someone a $1000 to sawz all it down to the keel.

The problem with donating it is moving it. it wouldn't make economic sense. The permits to move a boat of this size could take weeks, if not months to obtain.

If you were willing to take 18k without finishing the restore, I think Denise has the best idea. Sell the motors, ASAP, scrap the rest and buy something near home to restore.

It's all but impossible to finance a project boat of this condition.

Ahhh. That sucks. So, how did the conversation go with the yard? Did you find some place to take her?

Re: I need advice ..off shore or Intracoastal NJ to Florida

Yes that is correct .. about a month ago I posted my boat on Ebay and this guy was the high bidder .. but his financier backed out at the last minute ..
I had a few other guys want it ..but no one as of yet stepped up .
So this is why now I am behind the power curve and getting it marginally sea worthy ..even to launch and get a different marina before the weather complicates things ..

Re: I need advice ..off shore or Intracoastal NJ to Florida

Jaan, I'm confused. The eBay listing says someone won the auction with an $18,000 bid. Did they not pay you?

Re: I need advice ..off shore or Intracoastal NJ to Florida

I love the journey more than the arrival .. I am a mechanical guy that enjoys projects ..
And I suffer from the sickness of no one else's work is good enough and I need to do it myself "my way "
The so called finished boats I have purchased in the past all needed so much work I just as well gutted them and started over ...
Now, there are great sailboats out that would meet my standards .. but I also can not afford them ..the old champagne desire on a beer budget thing !! but over time I will get it there and love doing it all the way there .. the difference here is the 3K miles that makes all the difference ..
