    IDK, my guess is that is was launched and not properly inspected before putting on the mooring.

    Its still there. No insurance and no one wants to touch it. Owner is AWOL. 30' Oday, I've been told by snailboaters that their value is around 5k when they float.

    Sounds like a sailboater, until it's no longer FREE they'll take it. Jerks.

    Well that's to bad But the rigging really is worth more than the hull in that case.

    Hell you could have gotten that job done with your rig.

    We watched some drunk idiot drop a catamaran in over the weekend. No plugs, no deck plates. It went down in about 5 mins. Pontoons shot straight up. It was quite entertaining.

    And people wonder why boatyards have started inspecting boats that they launch.
