Everytime I see these boats, I think of guys like GaryDebs who are struggling to get a boat. And these people have let these boats rot into goo for what ever reason. It is a very sad situation.

All these boats suffered through the winter like this. Snow, rain, ice, leaves and probably bird dung has made it's way into these boats. Rotting out seats, and floor boards.
WHAT A SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doesn't it make you sick...They'll get frustrated with it and try to sell it for top dollar too.

Don't worry...we'll get a boat sometime or another. Just want to be sure that everythings gonna be alright finacially and job wise...

Part of me thinks that buy now things will get better...but what if????????

Don't be to hard on these people. Some of them go through divorces, bankruptcies or get laid off...... Some of them are down to their last nickle....... It's unfortunately but it happens.

There's a few boats like that in the lot I keep our boat in for the summer. One is a 16' Bayliner that was shrinkwrapped maybe 4 or 5 years ago and hasn't moved. The shrinkwrap was full of holes a couple years ago and last year only the supports were left and it's always full of water. Another boat had a tree growing in it last summer. They should just put a "Free to a good home" sign on them, I'm sure someone would try to bring them back from the dead and get some use out of them.

I understand that for some people, they just lose control of their finances or go through divorce.And I feel bad for them. But, so many times you hear that story, like that boat that was posted, still in the frozen chanel. If I remember the story correctly.....the owners partied like it was 1999, and just never showed up again. And left the boat as is. What a Shame!

I guess my point of this topic was to show how sad it is. No matter what the excuse.

All these boats are in plain view from the road, and I think part of the blame is the storage owners too. If someone does enter a divorce or simular situation, why not put an add in the paper (or even come onto LSCN to put the word out
) to try and sell the boat before it turns to goo. It's just a sad point to see so many of my friends that are boatless, and these boats here are going to waste.

The funny part is: Sometimes you will see boaters out at Gull, at night (mostly) with a boat that is in worst shape than some of these boats I posted here. And thay are staying afloat......hard to believe.
Crazy.

That 29' Formula Express WAS a nice boat at one time. That is what I was looking for before I bought our 34' Baja. Sometimes you can find a diamond in the rough.
