My Loss Could Be Your Gain

In late September a STORM put my Swan-43 on the rocks in her home harbor. She was declared a total loss by insurance. I was preparing to move to winter storage and had off-loaded a lot of gear. I was also able to salvage equipment before she was crushed. As they say a picture is worth a 1000 words, go to link below to review available equipment photos.
