We 'salvaged' an Eliminator 32' off the hard ten years after invasion. It survived the Invasion because it had been sunk in Marina.
It cost us a crate of 'tea' to get out of the storage fees
It cost us the price
of EVERYTHING except the hull
and boom to rebuild
When we upgraded we sold it for half the price
we'd put into it.
I'd like to say it's nice to see her being used, but she's now sat in the marina 52 weeks a year.
At least we learnt how to rebuild
the boat, so that when we got around to rebuilding the 'real' one, we (sort of) knew what we wanted.
