Re: Steel Schooner with concrete ballast

I do not have any other pictures of the bad spots this is what the broker sent me it is near the bow thruster.. we will most likely look at her after the holidays and be able to put hand on we are awaiting the blueprints and construction of he which will let us know exactly what her build is and then we can go from there yes we will get a good deal on her but i dont want to go broke bringing her back to life.....

The up side is you can go out and hit things and keep on laughing and sleep through a thunder storm. Anyone who's ever been to jail knows how to weld and steel is cheap.
Good luck.
Yeah, not joke. One of the very first things I did with our big boat was wack a submerged piling at 7 knots. Picked us right up. Must have run over it straight on. Can't even find the spot on the 2" shoe.
