Update. Just noticed ole Babe Ruthless is no longer on A1A but moved into death row at Cracker Boys. I suggest we form a save BR foundation. Refit, carbon rig, sails, we need to have a rudder built... 300K later we could have a fun $50K boat to play with.
Such a common story.
I asked the yard if she was for sale or if the owner would consider a reasonable offer and they said absolutely not. That was 6 years ago. Apparently people stop by and ask all the time.
Yes no rudder and no tarp on the house. Jack stands as I recall.
