That boat is having some bad luck. If somebody could do the work themselves, it would prolly be worth it. Assuming she is dry and sound.

Funny how he put that much work into it, and now selling for way less than he's got in it.

There is no way I'm going to read 70 pages. I feel a tightening in my chest imagining the colossal undertaking this boat requires and the money that has been hemorrhaged to date.

Just marathon read this thread, all 70 pages. What an amazing story of getting the boat to where it had to, just to end badly. Hopefully NEMS prevails in the end.

I saw a picture on Instagram on Christmas Day of it being towed again by Ryan Sewell at Downrite Towing. He's got a picture and video of it being towed then a picture of it tied up at a slip right next to a bridge somewhere. Not sure why it moved again.

That was after the hurricane sunk it. Then all that labor and material to patch the hull all over the place. Yes I have I Phone pictures I took before the first guy bought it. Then they put a bracket on it and two OX66 yamaha OBs Steering controls and cleaning out the boat to live on it on the way from NJ to southern FL. Then it sunk again in SC ? At the dock. Made a big environmental mess if I remember. Next the original contractor and the owner were not playing well any more. It made it to FL but never got finished and used. Kind of just got ugly from what we learned on here. Business wise I mean. Thats about it. I figure between all the money spent so far not just on the boat but Lawyers must have a tun of billable hours on this baby. Maybe $70,000. Sound like a familiar number? {Min Bid} They always get paid first. Probably a 1/4 Million flushed so far.?

Who's next? Thats the HOLE deal in a nut shell with out reading all the pages.
