Looks like someone cared about it at one point. Elements look like they have taken a heavy toll. I guess for the right price it could be a project. Wonder if the hull has been draining while sitting?

Not so much the elements but it was next to a boat that burned. Also the props are trashed, may need drive work and they are trs $$

----I wonder if that was caught in the big fire that was across the St.Clair river from me last year. Over 100 boats damaged and even though it was Canada there were many USA boats stored there. The backround doesnt look like it but the boat may have been brought back from Canada at some point.......Bill S

I looked at this boat at the copart yard, last week. It was a salt water boat and has extensive salt damage to drives. Also fire has melted alot of the interior.Engine bay is filled with ice too.

this actually looks like the boat that caught fire in Bisc Bay a couple years back.. I believe the owner blamed it on an electrical malfunction

I was just remined that the fire on the boat down here was due to an overheated engine... severely overheated :stan:

Bill the Cig was in the fire @ the Michigan Wyandotte Yacht Club last fall.

The bid of 12100 wasnt enough for farmers and its back with new pictures to entice new buyer with more $$$$$$:pimp:

At 625 now but then you have to add in Copart Auction fee and the Transaction fee (wtf is with all these fees??) they will be lucky to get a couple grand for it. Its already past what I would pay for a fire damage boat thats sitting up north with no top and I'm sure not winterized.

Other than women, there is nothing in the world more expensive than a "free" boat. And $625 is pretty close to free...

Gotta be a couple grand worth of parts here, but hard to tell from the pictures. Motors could be frozen, drives shot, hull damaged by fire, etc. They should have taken the $12k and ran with it IMO.
