At a minimum the sales tax rate is wrong. 8.25% in most of California. Always the pessimists here aren't we!!!

If you notice, there's a trailer in the background and I think they just moved there but haven't had a chance to put out the AstroTurf and little white picket fence. Their cars and trucks are on blocks too, but are out of the picture.

I saw this same one on BoatTrader the other day... it is definately fishy. Read the description here, it does not make any sense!

At the least, it will probably have some more hull damage from sitting on those concrete blocks like that.

The single block on the ground looks like it has a piece of plywood on it, so it may not be too bad. My concern is whether it was sunk in salt water. Being in WI, I wouldn't bother with it. If I see one like that near me, I'm gonna be on it like stink on a cowpie.

Below is the description of the boat as found on USAUCTIONS.com They are liquidators of salvage boats here in Florida.

Vessel was partially submerged on the starboard side. Ford 351 inboard, submerged. It's reported the cylinders were dried out and motor oil and filters were changed just after the vessel was hauled out. Hull has minor fiberglass damage on bottom, including some scrapes and gouges. Interior back seat is torn but overall upholstery is in fair condition. Winshield is in good condition. Wood swim step in fair condition. Steering, gauges and controls appear to be in average condition for a vessel of its age. Bimini top appears to be ok. Overall hull is in good condition for age and maintains gloss.

the way it sits it looks like it could fall of real easy. then you would have major hull and drive train damage.

thats pretty much how they set huge boats when they pull them out of the water.

I would guess it would be pretty stable because it has a stand on both sides in the rear.

Looks like wood on top of the blocks & i see some bunk carpet on the ground to the side of the boat as well. I'm sure they use the carpet between the blocks & the hull! :)

There is a lot of weight to the boat. It is pretty stable the way it sits. When we had our boat taken off the trailer, it was just like that, and it sat like if for about 4 months.

That was my first thought too. I don't see how it couldn't.

Not so much what the blocks are made of, but the fact that the hull is only supported in 3 spots (the keel among them). 250 sq inches is what's recommended.
