Ive been offered the chance to make an offer on an old Jarrah planked fishing boat thats seen better days... the bloke that owns it is doing time and has run up a major bill at the heavy haulage mob were it landed a couple of years ago and where it now sits out the back amid threats of chainsaws and fires!
So the boat... I will go have a good gander on Friday arvo when the blokes available to walk me through it... anyway from what Ive seen of it... its on a jinker but will need shorin up and placing on a low bed truck trailer and subsequent pilot and police escort... these add considerable costs and subsquently lower the "value" price... its as I said Jarrah planked no expoxy no fibreglass and has been on the jinker for about 3 or so years... if it stays there it will be another 10 before the bloke gets out (make a quick buck sellin dope jerk that found out it doesnt work!)
I estimate from the views Ive had from the road shes about 30 - 35ft from stem to stern has seen someone make and install a dogbox on top which looks like shyte... the motors not there as I dont think theres much else but will have to wait till Friday
So what figure? I reckon if I offer about $500 - $1000 (to offset some of their storage costs?)and they transport it to my place... they are after all a heavy haulage company!!
If they dont like the price well... say la gare eh!
What say you? Oh and I will take the el camerio with me!! pics to come!
