There's no way that is a legit bid. That thing is not worth the $$$ it would take to tow it away and chop it up.

JC WTF?!?!?! How do you end up with a clean swim platform on the beach and the rest bow-up on the buoy?

If it was really barnacles growing on that thing .... above the rub rail his 'salt water damage' is a lot more severe than photo's can show ....

Oh yeah ... he's got his hands full !

It will cost three times the original value of the boat to get it sort of kind of almost right again.

That is a totalled boat.

I wouldn't take it for free. You would still get upside down on the restoration.

I tried to explain that to an insurance adjuster on a theft recovered fountain. The boat had bee stripped from the dash board back... no engine, wiring, drives, trim tabs,, anything... I told the guy it's value was about what the trailer was worth plus about 5 grand. Maybe 8 thousand for the entire package. He seemed to think the boat was worth about 60k and it would only cost about 12k to put it back together... hahahahahahahaha... yeah... right.
