Some will recall the thread above re free yachts .

Browsing Gumtree tonight and came across this ...38 FEET....GRP...free.

Sad but true there must be many projects like this that have fallen by the wayside in people’s back yards. We currently live in our family home we had built nearly 40 years back. Kids are long gone and we know downsizing will come sometime in the next decade. Sadly I’m now disposing of the many projects and water toys that I’m not finishing or no longer using. Water scooter and powerboard went last year. Mainly so if something unforeseen happens my wife or kids don’t have to.

This appears to be a very sound hull with mast. Was probably some handy person’s dream Hope it’s resurrected.

Anyone have a project they’ve seen the light on and unloaded.

That's how Capt Joshua Slocum picked up the Spray all those years ago..

Wonder if the hull's damaged from the fall over onto the bilge?
