I am Looking to Buy a Damaged Catamaran

Hello.

Does anyone know how I can get infos on damaged boats for sale? I know, that in the US there are salvage auctions for cars. Does the same exist for boats?

We are looking for a catamaran with mast breakage.

Thanks.

Solar? No, no. Honestly, we are trying to change it to a flux capacitor.

Well, it was just a stab in the dark. If I came across a great deal on a dis-masted cat, that is what I would do now that China is cranking out panels for $1.13 per watt. Replacing sails are getting expensive.

I was just informed by a solar installer and solar company in Or. that there was going to be a tariff levied on solar imports from China due to manufacturing below their own cost to dominate the market. I think you'll se a big increase shortly.
