If they were free the shipping to the States would exceed their value.

They're sitting there because someone doesn't think they're worth fooling with, so you have to pay someone to package them, put them in a container & ship them to a major seaport. Then you have freight here, customs brokering and then transport to your final destination. All on a very cumbersome odd-sized piece of freight.

I have no idea on the shipping but I thing the rest of your numbers are WAY high.........Also from the pics it looks like alot of the rigging is there parts wise. We had a Cougar of the vintage and granted it hadn't sat out side but we dropped a set of motors in it and it ran fine for two seasons. It too has sat ever since....... I believe you could end up with a nice piece out of a couple of those, if you saw the project through....

I think that is optimistic, maybe an aluminum one, the others have probably soaked up so much water from being outside uncovered they are likely to be waterlogged junk. Besides they were put to pasture for a reason.

LOL Exactly! $40 is worth just having the "uncensored" section alone!
LOL, I just got the "wife/sister" part. Too funny

It's hard to say what's still there and whats usable from these pics so I'm assuming they need everything. If you intended on re-rigging I think these costs are close if you had to pay to get the work done. Most folks would not have the stomach for this kind of a project. The # of hours involved are staggering.

No argument, if all they need are motors then you might be able to get one going pretty easy. My guess is that they are missing major components.
