The promised Indiantown Marina (Florida) sailboat auction
was a flop, no one showed so no auction
was held. The boat
I was interested in supposedly had a standing offer way over what I was willing to spend. He did say he had a boat
he would give me because he thought it was too nice a sailboat to destroy and he didn't want the expense of tearing it apart and paying the dump fees
. He showed me a 46-47ft (?) very shallow draft
wide stern boat that appeared in descent shape on the outside. I don't recognize the make but I think it may be a gulfstar
or something similar. Bottom appeared clean and the decks seemed solid.
Beware though, I went onboard and this is a true gut job, mold
and moisture damage throughout, wiring
shot and the diesel
seized. The marina owner said he would even throw in free yard time but I've got enough on my plate. I took a couple pics of the exterior and one of the HIN. Maybe someone will recognize this make and model and better yet, someone may find a project
. But be forewarned, bring your checkbook for the rehab!
