Re: So... I have sort of a situation

Is Victory going to leave now before we find out the end of the story? I've really been enjoying the saga.

Yes. This has been quite a saga!

Do or do not... There is no try.

But we don't know the ending. I'm not going to get all bent out and lose the rest of the story. This was just plain fun!

I don't think you can blame people on an online forum for some guy taking a completely wrecked derelict boat, trying to tow it somewhere where it wouldn't fit and then his tow boat dumping the line leaving him to drift away?

The only "thick" " joke" here are the people involved with that derelict scow.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Where is Harvey when you need him for the other side of the story? Problem is that if he sunk it, and the water isn't hundreds of feet deep, then the USCG will get involved and make him bring it back up at outrageous cost due to it being a danger to shipping.

I knew someone locally who took a prospective buyer out for a trial sail. The dude said he knew the area, but apparently he lied. He got the boat too close to Bald Rock Ledge in Frenchman's Bay and not only did he run aground but he put a huge gash in the Fiberglas hull and it sank in 70 feet of water. The USCG said it was a hazard to the shipping lanes and needed to be removed. Why it would be in the shipping lanes is beyond me since the shipping lanes wouldn't be close to the rock, but perhaps the tide could move it. Luckily he had insurance to pay for the raising. The buyer decided not to buy the boat after having been rescued off the rock.

Well I guess he would have been given a pretty good discount!
