Default Bought a silly auction item - jacksonville Fl help please.

Need help / thoughts. My partner (and I, I guess) bought a 90' x 20' barge "in working order". It's at Blount Island - Jacksonville Fl. It has twin diesel engines and is near 200,000 lbs - the extent of my knowledge of the boat - i'll post some pictures. We have 10 days to get it out of there and to storage / slip?? for a while till we can figure out what we are doing with it or who we may sell it to. I may need a captain / pilot? I'll need insurance for a few days? Where can we store this size vessel? How much should it cost? I'm going down to Jacksonville tomorrow AM and I am returning weds in hopes that will be enough time to get things squared away. Thanks for any help / thoughts. Good bars / Restaurants?
Thanks,
Bryan

The dockage is going to eat you alive!!!!!!!Maybe you can put a hand rail around it and turn it into a floating bar ----- Drag it to Key West and Park It just Off Mallory Square

My buddy runs a a pretty well known tugboat company but says they would be pricey. He says their is a lot of ma and pa shops that would do it cheaper. If you need to speak with someone who knows a lot about the water area i can get you in contact with him. Let me know
