Re: Mast removal
A free boat is the most expensive boat one can own. Before you take possession of the boat find out what this model is worth in pristine condition. Start adding up the cost to get this boat in that condition, crane time, power wash and scrap the reef from her bottom, transportation cost. We are at around $5 grand here already and you haven't even sanded her teak, fixed the spongy decks or replaced the running and standing rigging. Engine ok? No, add another at least 8 to 10 grand, sails? 5 grand, OH oh, blisters, 3 grand, two years in the yard, and before you take possession of her will your present yard allow her in?
Who owns the boat? The marina? It cost the marina to dispose of her so maybe they should pay you to take her off their hands. Then again you may have the deal of the century. As my grand pappy always said, Always look a gift horse in the mouth. Good luck and keep us posted please.
