I did have to laugh at the auctioneers' comment 'we feel this boat needs restoration' Really? Smile ))

Best wishes,

Or "resotration" in the case of the second lot. Playful

To quote builder Mr.O'Riley in Fawlty Towers..."Lick o' paint, lick o'
paint o'er an hour" LOL

Seriously though...these vessels look like they would be expensive if
they were free! What would be the chance of lifting the first one out
of the water without breaking her back? Dry dock maybe? ££££££££

As one of these has it's bilge pump running almost continuously (at least when we've passed), I don't think I'll be bidding! Where do the auctioneers get their valuations from?

It's the 21st century . . . so where's my nuclear-powered flying car, then?

I reckon they would be
lucky to find any takers
even if they were given
away! They would have to
be braver than me.

As Regulo  said lot 7 is continuously pumping water out and not just a trickle must be letting it in as fast as it can pump it out but on the plus side at least you know something works take a braver. Person than me

Well they're certainly not going to be economic restorations, even if they were free (then again the same could be said for a lot of boats, though maybe not to the same extent).

As for lifting the wooden one out, I agree I probably wouldn't be prepared to say she could take it, so the most viable option (assuming somebody came along with considerably more money than sense, again not unknown in the boating community) would be to float her in to a wooden or steel cradle, and then lift that out.

Realistically, I suspect both of these boats are at the end of their lives, and somebody is trying to get out of the expense of lifting them and disposing of them responsibly.
