Yes...Totally outrageous. Northern Ca. is a different story. I'm anchored down here waiting to cross into Mexico
soon. Ever since Santa Barbara...it's all about money
. I know your heart is in the right place wanting to restore a tired boat
. It was once an earnest undertaking...not anymore.
I've resurrected or built from scratch, 7 boats now. There probably won't be an 8th with the way things are. To be honest, I don't know what is going to happen to all these forgotten vessels.
