and Genset alone are worth $5k, I imagine. Me and GF looked at and seriously considered an OI41 before finding a sweet deal on a pretty much sailaway Bruce Roberts
44. The OI is very spacious and quite strongly built. once afloat with engine
running and pushing the boat with no issues that boat is a steal at 5k. As it is, it is a gamble but IMHO a good one. Make sure the name of the seller matches the one on the unexpired Certificate Of Documentation
. Get insurance
quote and find a slip for the the boat before you get stuck with it.
I will echo the Negative Nancys and state my doubt about CG pulling the boat off, and not screwing it up in the bargain. But you can very likely kedge it off during a very high tide. Anyway get some anchors out. Way out. On windlass
and sheet winches. When water is up, crank her off bit by bit. At low tide, get busy with with the "Mexican Dragline" and dig dig dig. If you have a fixed prop, take it off. You will create less damage than someone else trying to tow her off, and a barge and crane will probably cost you $10k minimum for a day, due to demand. Still... maybe worth it?
