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.




That takes all the fun out of it. It's like Jerry Springer , a chick a baby a dude and a fight.
No fun No drama

the funny thing is they call it an asset on the auction site

It is definitely still in Fort Lauderdale. As I drove over the SR 84 bridge this morning on the way in, I saw it docked at Marina Road Boatyard. Outboards are off of it now, but the starboard bracket is still attached.

Those little OX yams pushed that tub from NJ to SC then went under water over night. Then they flushed them out and drove that Viking to FL. Those Yams should be made into saints.

Thats the only value I see.

I think you meant Florida, but darn tooting about those Yamahas. They are battle proven and good enough to move a battle wagon.

It could make a good floating camp moored to a dock if it could be trusted to float.

Someone with the time, skills and money can make that a beautiful functional rig once again. Probably for a good bit less than what it would cost if it were in "turn key" condition.

Someone would have to really want a project boat though.

That would be quite a rebuild thread. I'd read all 127 pages of it.
