Now that I'm getting to the end of my refit of my boat, there is an OLD fishing trawler looking boat on some abandoned property near me. It's old enough that the hull has the actual lapped wood on it. It's got a wheel house and looks to be about 20', but it could be bigger. The wheel house makes it look shorter. Looks like it would draw a lot of water as well. It's on a trailer but of course the outboard has the L/U scavenged off of it. I'm really getting the itch to go to the courthouse, see who the registered owner of the property is (or was till they let the taxes go delinquent) and see if they wouldn't mind me getting the boat off their property. The paint still looks like it might have kept serious rot from happening on the outside, but I haven't actually gotten out of the car and seen how bad of shape the inside is in. I realize this will cost me bigtime in both my wife's patience as well as some serious cash in materials, but it's really driving me nuts looking at that thing just sitting there. I keep getting this image of it on the MO river with a brand-spanking new coat of haze gray paint on it and rods hanging off the back....................and the sun shining off the brass bell that would HAVE to be hanging off the roof of that wheel house by the back door................... You guys really need to tell me how crazy I am for even thinking of getting out of the car and looking at this thing.
