Matt - yeah, that's a good point. There's a few boats in this area right now that are priced below $500 but "free" seemed worth sharing.

"Free, tall rig, furling sail. engine in good shape. needs keel bolts fixed, I have all the materials to do the job but I do not have the time. Free, at young's boat yard in sparrows point."
