Re: Derelict, abandoned and marina foreclosures

Another idea is to find a Youth Sailing or Sea Scout group that takes donated boats and sells them. I've seen 30ft boats with running engines sold for $1500.

Re: Mystery water in bilge in CAL-29

If it had a very strong smell I would think rats are visiting. So it is probably water. It is picking up some rust, oily mud or dirt from the anchor locker or the transverse beam and that's where the...

I've used PoliGlow on about six 1970-80's age boats with excellent results. It is basically like an acrylic floor wax with a ton of UV agents in it. It can put a shine back on a 20-30 year old boat...
