It is a shame to see those wasting away like that.

Let's do some math though;

Ship old hull from Italy: $15k
Pair of supercat motors: $100k
SSMVI or Arnesons: $100k
Cat Trailer: $20k
Rigging: $150k on up
Paint: $50k

We're at $435k and I'm sure the cost would end up being much higher. You can buy an awful lot of boat ready to run for that kind of scratch.

As sad as it is there is a good reason nobody has done anything with them.

I think you are light on the shipping. I am checking on shipping my boat and trailer too St Thomas. Its around 10K with an 9ft by 50

Could be way off on that #. I just took a WAG at it. We just shipped a Fourwinns to Kiwi for a customer and it was right at $11k for a 25ft boat.
