All this talk of auxilliary power options for a NY30 got me thinking about one dying a slow death in the yard where my own boat just spent the winter. I know this isn't the place to buy or sell boats, but it kills me to see this old thoroughbred disintegrate. Some major work was done some years ago - new keel or a portion of keel was replaced. She was in a plastic building but this is also disintegrating, there being no plastic left this Spring. I do not know who owns her. There is probably a large yard bill associated with her.
Is there an angel out there prepared to step up to the plate? Job NO. 1 is to get the roof back on the building. The yard where she resides is fully capable of restoring the boat although this kind of restoration is not this yard's main business. I hesitate to even inquire because I don't want to get my hopes up. But it is heartbreaking to see this great old sloop slowly becoming firewood.
