Kai Nui once whispered in the wind:
Jim, I agree with you completely. It is fortunate for my budget that I am 2000 miles away. As I look through, I see lots of beautiful boats that I would love to rescue.
I'm reminded of the "Fatty Goodlander" story in Cruising World. His Hughes
38 was recovered as a "totaled" boat, and now he's starting his second circumnavigation
in it. It's far from a perfect, beautful boat, but he puts his time and effort into the structural and essential things and seems to do fine.
Does anyone know if there'll ever be a "clearing resource" from insurance
companies for the boats that were paid off? I'm probably too far away to make it worth shipping
one, but it would be nice if they weren't all bulldozed away and cut into scrap for the landfills.
