I am especially impressed with the variable depth fixed keel, thats shallow when you don't want it to be (maximum depth), and deep when you do want it shallow (minimum depth.)   Hmm, contrarian keel technology, or just a boat with Oppositional Defiant Disorder?

And I have not been able to find any reference to a Cat 30 with centerboard or swing keel.

Aspirational granite. It's okay. It wears well, so you should go on hating your kitchen for decades to come. (Except particle board substrate on a boat isn't so good.) 

I try to push people who crave the stone look to price actual granite, which is now only about 2x the price of a custom laminate job. But that can still be $2-3k additional, and the budget does not always stretch. Stone or solid surface on a boat is heavy

Two "motivated sellers." I wonder why...

Rant: I know this is a free country, but sometimes I think individuals, and the community, need to be protected from these nautical follies. It's not unlike zoning ordinances, building codes and construction permits that protect individuals and the community from harebrained schemes, shoddy construction and unfinished projects, at least most of the time. Think about the social cost of these abandoned hulks.

1977 30' Catalina that had a custom refit with a pilothouse added. This is a great project boat with a nice diesel engine. Asking $10,700. Very Motivated. Bring All Offers!

Very motivated, just not motivated to pick up a scrub brush and a hose or any of the crap lying around. The pilothouse would look OK on some other boat, I guess. If I had seen this over my morning coffee I'd probably mock it more thoroughly. It deserves it.

These "projects," and I use the term advisedly, are so bad that the owners are so spent and drained that they don't even have the energy to clean up the wretched hulk before taking their "marketing" pics. Doesn't that say something?

The listing broker who I won't even dignify by using their real name is "*Shitified Sales*" and has a yard that is local to me. AFAIK he is the originator of the legal but fake "bid against yourself not really an auction, auction". They will list anything but that description takes even them to a whole new level of fucktardiness.

For example, here is a more typical description for a J-30 with severe keel damage.

"It was reported that the vessel took on damage at hull to keel joint, due to external force being placed on the keel. This action caused keel to twist, and swings back and forth when moved with a small amount of force. The break is shown from port to starboard, and aft of keel to the right of the keel to starboard (review photos). Otherwise she looks to be in good condition."

I’ve bought several boats from Certified Sales in the past.

They are very professional and their method of open auction is appealing to me. They describe the damage realistically and the market sets the final purchase price. 

I tell them to call me when a certain “asset” is down to 2 or 3 serious bidders so I can outbid them if I really want the boat.

Of course there are boats that are complete losses while others are solid projects that pass surveys for reconstruction. 

This particular boat is worth about what they are asking. It can be stripped for metal that will wind up on eBay if anyone gets down there with a sawzall. If not, Certified cuts them up and disposes of them. That’s the downside for them. Poor Albert, down there sweating his ass off at the staging grounds...

This boat does not look like it would pass any sort of inspection for carrying passengers, and he doesn't mention having an SVOP certification either.  I guess the deck chairs in the cockpit cover the ergo-nomics?5af0f4d77d257__519.thumb.JPG.5ef6d1f1e2142cadc20849d7f7890cb2.JPG5af0f4d2f39f7__59.JPG.02294297c7fbecb5ccfed2b7b041c68d.JPG

Then there's this:

"Westerbeke Diesel (runs)
Mercury 9.9 HP 25" xl shaft 2 new props (big pitch and high rev) on Garelick mount on CMC tilt and trim"

Does that sounds like the diesel runs but does not actually power the boat and the 9.9HP Merc is mounted on the transom for propulsion?

Maybe not such a great deal after all.

In full disclosure I had a gutted Seabreeze that I was going to restore but threw in the towel and cut up last year. The Seabreeze is a nice CCA centerboarder if, as Unc Tom says it's what you want.

That's exactly what it sounds like to me.

But if the transom were not decorated with an outboard and the diesel powered the boat, I would expect the price to have five figures.

As a pro I’m treated just like any other chump looking for a boat when it comes to Certified. Their job is to take damaged boats that have been deemed totaled by the insurance company and sell that asset at between 10 and 25% of the actual value of the boat for the insurance company and keep 8% in service fees. The boats they sell or sometimes broker all have clear titles unlike automobiles which would come with salvage titles. To clear a salvage title as rebuilt, you have to prove to the motor vehicle commission that the car or truck has been totally rebuilt to safety standard. The boats are sold as structural losses with clear title. It’s up to a surveyor to determine the true damage and recommend repair procedures before the average person buys. After Superstorm Sandy, 65,000 boats were damaged on the East Coast. Many insurance adjusters lost their jobs  because they just wrote up incorrect or false damage reports. I found a few of them early on and waited for them to come to auction.

In the past, I have bought boats that match restorations I’m doing, and one one occasion, I was able to buy an Ensign sailboat that had a good deck and transplanted that on one that needed a new deck. The boat cost me $100 and a new replacement deck is $5,000. That savings was passed on to my customer who appreciated it. 

That said, I’ve seen guys buy beat to hell old boats from them at high prices with no skills to repair them properly. That is not Certified’s fault- that’s the buyers responsibility to know their abilities. I feel bad for those folks...there are plenty of cheap boats that have not been through a catastrophe.

Well now I'm curious..... IS there such a thing as a "salvage title" for boats? Here in NC there is also a "flood title" for cars that have not ben damaged any other way than having been in a flood.

Insurance fraud seems endemic. I've seen it on an industrial scale, followed by the inevitable crash. When will people learn?

I don’t think there is a salvage title on an insurance totaled boat. They just don’t want to pay for an extensive repair  so they pay out an agreed upon value to the owner and then dispose of the boats through salvage brokers. Unlike an automobile with bent frame, water damage or other truly difficult and expensive repairs that deem them true salvage, a totaled boat is just a piece of plastic that can be “glued” back together as good as new under most circumstances. That said, if you buy that Moorings Beneteau or the J boat with the keel fracture without a complete survey, good luck paying a surveyor $600 plus later and getting them to agree that the boat is repairable or an insurance company to insure you without the complete survey list being repaired. That can be prohibitively expensive...

But a boat that has a couple of holes punched in it or a chunk of deck torn out from a dismasting,  no problem repairing

I really don't see the problem here. I mean other than the huge crack and the fact that the keel is easily moved with a small amount of force.

If I arrived, saw that, pushed on it and it moved, AND the "otherwise in good condition" somehow proved to be true, I'd consider it a fair representation of what they were selling.

Oh come on, that's a relatively tidy one by Craigslist standards.  

When I bought my current boat, I pulled a whole truckload of junk off of it.  There were no dumpsters at the marina so I loaded up the farm truck. It was astonishing, but the stuff just kept coming.  Since this was my first "big" boat, it was quite amazing to think that I now owned a boat that could contain a whole truck load of junk.

No need for a mast past that point anyway...plenty of Pitt-falls beyond there, Seagrams Cove, Crack Bay, Meth Arm, Coke Spoon Cove and Blunt Point...the only salvation being a Mission in Mission.

I'm trying to figure out the garden hose, bucket, brush and wet dock. Did they actually attempt to clean this thing up for the photos? The sheer at the bow does look a shade darker.

Either that or they are cleaning up the evidence from a fuel spill.

Is the neighborhood that bad that you need to lock up your bike AND the front wheel like in the city?

The bow starts to look darker right about where it would get hard to scrub from the dock. I believe you're right! They did attempt a partial cleaning.

Despite everything else, it should probably be ejected from this thread for that reason. There's always Uglyboats, the Pilothouse thread, and COTB for further discussion of this one, which does sound like fun.

I’m surprised they didn’t lock the boat to the dock so the marina wouldn’t kick them into the flotsam zone

Looking for a pilothouse? Oh, wait, wrong thread...

You may well pass on this one...

I admire the use of structural headers in the construction, rasta wiring, 2 microwaves for redundancy, claim of plentiful storage with pics of crap everywhere and the expansive flare of the ph at the stern.

It is in Richmond on the Fraser, so next ad it will be listed upstream in Mission...

We all know you need a guitar or banjo in the pics to sell a lady like this...

The sails appear to be the dacron equivalent of Tom's plywood experiment.:D

Pictures look good, except for location of the solar panels... Blisters are easy not to show on pictures.
