Re: Would you consider buy a boat that sank?

Maybe the people, like me, that are advising against, are thinking of more than a day sailor. If an out board day sailor and the engine was flushed go For it.


Maybe some of us get tunnel vision and don't ask for the facts.

Re: Would you consider buy a boat that sank?

The old saying,"One mans trash is another's treasure" fits here.

I have picked up many items on spec. Cars, mechanical items and certainly boats. The gift horse seems a scary prospect for some.

I hope you enjoy the boat if you decide to take it.

Looking for another pretty place to work on the boat.
