I would think that in Southern Maine you could get a decent long term lease / rent with decent tenants to go with it? Nice to have something to go back to if things don’t go as planned.

I wonder what those screws are set in as to break the screw? 5200 or maybe epoxy before it was cured? Maybe done by a previous owner? I think the boring tool is the way I would go.
