I dropped by a soon to close down marina today to see if I could salvage some small spars for the beach cat I'm building for my daughter. No luck, but I saw several old wood boats. The marina guy was in the process of sawing the last few feet of the hull and transom off a 52' Chris. He's gonna make a bar out of it. Another large wooden cruiser displayed two gaping holes on each side of the hull. Boat had sunk, marina dude had retrieved it and sold the engines, which actually still ran. PDQ engine removal - saw the hull apart and drop the engine and sawed bearing mounts on the ground. Sorta like removing a kidney with a Sawzall.
