A low ball on a C10.7 in that condition would pretty much be "free" ....I hope you are not far off of that..... good luck!

Cowboy Sailer,

A yawl boat would probably work fine, except this one probably has a kelp forest hanging on its bottom.

Re: in the water for 9 years

Be sure and post what happens.

I'd tow it and get it hauled, but it really depends on what you paid and how much effort you're willing to put in.

Re: in the water for 9 years

rvoigt40, give us an update on how you come out. There is towing insurance from dock to dock to get it fixed through TowBoatUS they have a special price for just your problem.

Re: in the water for 9 years

So today i asked him how many times he's painted the bottom in the 22 years since he's owned it he said once and didn't have a way to prove it, strike one, not what i wanted to hear.
Then i asked about the zincs if he had ever change them 22 years since he's owned he said no,, strike two.
Then we started the motor and water started pouring in from the bellow strike three.
and it was out of there he will have to find another suck.
Thanks again for the opinions and advice

Re: in the water for 9 years

my boat had not been out of the water for 14 years when I got it. Also had not moved for 11 years and had a foot of growth under it. Also no zincs but why would I need them? I removed all bronze thru holes. The engine didn't work but I didn't want one which is good.

Now I have been to 14 countries in 5 years my boat is great.

Re: in the water for 9 years

Make your next deal for a boat with a few: Subject to's like subject to this inspection of engine a good one is compression check of pistons, Subject to bottom inspection out of water at sellers expense or if favorable split the costs at the most. Subject to an electrical inspection, Subject to updating software for electronics, and nothing less than a subject to purchase with a favorable survey with seller correcting deficiencies. Seller has a chance to fix, or back out, or renegotiate the deal. If not favorable to seller he can fix and sell to another prospect.
