Re: The Benefits of Bottom Feeding
Due to economic conditions of the past 10 years, the "bottom" has been redefined.
In more prosperous times, my boat would have sold for $10,000 (which still isn't a lot, in the yachting world). I bought it for $4,000.
As Jones says, I knew that it was "safe to eat":
Dry core in the decks and cabin, strong engine, solid rigging, a full suit of sails, electrical system fully functional, and not a total pile of spaghetti.
All of the amenities work- fresh water, stove, toilet, etc.
30 feet, sleeps 6, still competitive in the racing scene?!?!
That's not bottom feeding, it's practically theft!
