That's not salvage, that is looting.

The hull, deck, and masts are intact. I am surprised that there is any thought that she would be cut up. I would expect her to be worth more in one piece.

I looked at it saturday,everything is intact.The owner had to pay and give the boat up to the salvager.Beside the rudder being ripped off the boat can definetly be repaired.
