Looks like it is a woody and sunk.

Wouldn’t take a lot of effort to rip out the engine and tanks. Turn it into a private artificial reef. Any idea what the enviro permit process costs for that?

That is not a 'Free Boat'. That is someone hoping you take a problem off of their hands for free. They are looking to invest labor, transportation and disposal fees to get rid of that boat. They are hoping you take it away from them for free.

Anything is possible to restore provided you have sufficient time, labor and money. The problem is, no matter what state of repair/restoration you get that boat, it will be worth half of what you have invested in it.

Plus, at the end of the day, it will still be a 40 year old wooden boat.

If it's a woodie...not even going to get a permit mailed to you. They are poor reefs as the break apart and wash ashore.

Agree......

Only possibility is if a few key systems are salvageable, the motor parts are too and the rare bronze hardware is still there and intact...then maybe you might make a buck or two.

Interesing location for his radar. It is appears to be right at eye level a few feet in front of the upper helm.

State reef programs can't use wood boats. Fiberglass either with the exception of FL post IRMA. My old marina in the Chesapeake use to cut up woodies with a chain saw and drag them with a tractor to a burn pile.

There is also lot of high quality mahogany in the planks.

That's got to be of some value to a cabinet maker or someone else.

Chainsaw the stern at the aft cabin. I see the forward half as a Tiki bar parked up against the elevated veranda of my home. Thank God it is 800 miles away so that will never happen.

Sad but as a wise man told me: all boats have a last owner. I'm guessing the cost of disposal would exceed whatever you can salvage in hardware. Cost of restoring: well beyond what you can buy a nice GB woodie for.

About 4 years ago I saw a great looking wooden GB 36 for $12,000 asking with 2 recently rebuilt 120 Lehmans.

Heck, the engines were worth that easily if as advertised.

This one for free would have to come with a dumpster and permit.

For clarification...I didn’t suggest it would be a good deal for anyone

Kind of a “found boats” like on downeastboatforum.com
If it is entertaining, I could always post other some other finds, like a $299 ‘live aboard” or $3000 40’+ house boat with owner financing, tarps included.

Didn’t want to crap up the interesting boats thread though.

Hey...its more interesting to me than the interesting boat thread. Cruising the waterways and marinas I see those.

These puppies are as always good for entertainment.

Yes! Post more!

It'll be a sort of a virtual stroll through the back lot of a boatyard, where they keep all those once-proud, decaying, abandoned relics. Those are among my favorite places to explore.

You must be referring to the 'Forward' radar (Open Array) as opposed to the "Aft" radar (Dome) on the fold-down mast. Kind of reminds me of the 70's with the working tv set sitting on the broken console TV set. LMFAO!!!!

There absolutely is, but the cost in labor to salvage the planks would be greater than the cost of the usable board feet yielded. There is a difference between Demo and Salvage. The latter is done painstakingly to prevent breaking things.

This is like collecting discarded cans for the .05 deposit. Even if you collected 500 cans in 8 hours, you still only made $25.
