Gifts. Yes here's a partial list of the gifts left for me.
Two very corroded faucets stored (for spares?) when the PO replaced the ones in the heads with new which were by then also very corroded.
Three full sized garbage cans of extremely frayed and chaffed lines, Irish pennants and rope
ends, many no more that 3-6' long.
One trash bag full of old wiring
including: the signal and power lines for two dead transducers that were both left lying in the bilge
still connected to the wires, three coax cables
to the masthead 2 VHF
(one old and cut, one "new") 1 Loran
that was long dead, wiring for an autopilot
stolen from the boat 25 years ago, lamp cord used as power wire for several lights and electronics
One medium trash bag of melted, gooey electrical
One small bag of tie wraps. NOTE: putting a bunch of tie wraps on a crappy wiring job does not make it a good wiring job.
Several small, very cheap
I could go one but it will just annoy me all over again so better stop now.
