I will pull the power out fo mine and let it go for $15k , (red 40' excalibur in the swap shop)

I would pass plus if it has a salvage title resale value won't be much
I read the same thing about the toxic water but can't find the link.

the story we were told is the boat was in a dry stack storage place with the plug out in missisippi when the water came in. he sent a pic of under the bed area and there doesn't look like any mold. still, after reading the posts, it looks like my husband (as sensible as he can be sometimes) really needs to pass on this. thanx for the help!

It all depends on the price. Engines and drives will need to be gone through. If you would show a pic of the boat and details I think the power of OSO could give you a good number.

And I'll bet that number will be higher than a good running boat would be.
