Went on deck
yesterday morning to drink my first cup of coffee and saw this in the slip directly behind our boat
. The Nonsuch 32 that was sitting on the bottom had been donated to Challenged America which is a local charity that takes folks with disabilities sailing.
The Nonsuch had been sitting at the dock
for about five months as Challenged America tried to sell her.
Vessel Assist gave them a "deal & discount" only $4,000 to refloat a boat
that was for sale
The cause of the sinking was
1 - the kitchen sink drain threads corroded away
2 - the hose connected to the rotten drain fell to the floor
3 - the floor was below the waterline
4 - the thru hull
for the kitchen sink drain was "stuck" open when they received the boat as a donation - six months ago
5 - they never bothered to replace the stuck open thru-hull
the boat is now in the yard so they can replace the bad thru-hulls
