Re: This stuff drives me nuts....

Whether it was standing or sinking water damage, it is in very bad shape, and I just cannot imagine a market that would bear the price in that condition. Now if the market will accept boats in that condition at that price I am going to get rich buying boats and actually cleaning them up and repairing them then sailing them down and selling them.

Seriously, I could buy the boats here, ship them as deck cargo to a location in a South American country where I can get good help at a rate that would be great for the guys working and for me too, then sail them down and sell them.

Anybody down in New Zealand know if the import duties on boats for sale being brought in from out of country would be super stupid? PM if you have information.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
