The free deals are tough to walk away from, currently know of a free C&C
27 and another of the same model available asking 2000$ probably get it for undr 1000 in the spring. 2 C&C
27s for about a grand.
For the person with the time, space, skills and money
I bet you could make one nice boat
from the two, then scrap one and sell the lead keel
to get some money
Problem is you can get a nice C&C 27 ready to sail for about 10 000 almost turn key.
This one hurts because it's a pair of one of my favorite boat!
