Found in Jacksonville FL. I believe this is not too far from Green Cove Springs Marina, an affordable do it yourself boat yard.

Got a friend who'd likely be super interested.... Shame it'll likely be gone before he'd even get a chance to look into it.

That's a rather large assumption I think. One may be surprised how long things like this may stick around. Iv seen nice free vintage cars sit for years. And iv seen beater money buckets sell faster than you can say money. Sometimes the project takes a special person to see the potential. I would love to see this go to a vagabond!

It's a dream of mine to fix up and live on a sail boat. I kinda learned how to sail on a lake when I was younger. Biggest boat I ever maned was 26ft lol. That's a big boat for the tiny lake we were on lol. I hope this can be sombody else's dream come true.

My friend has done it before, free fixer-upper sail boat rehabilitation... Lost his sail boat to marina fees due to a lil extended enforced "vacation" ... He's almost constantly talking about wanting a boat back... Also just got a job that has him working WAY too much to make even a "free" boat possible in atleast the next month... But, as, if he had the time, he would be a serious prospect... I'll mention it to him... (wish the link worked... Not hunting it down on facebook just to "show" people...) :)

That's awsome! Did you ever have any troublesome or interesting encounters bc you flew a black flag?
Wait... I'm not in that documentary. The only time I spent at sea was a 4 year stint in the Navy hauling subs up & down the Thames on a tug.
The doc was done by Moxie Marlinspike. Interesting fellow, who I believe is big in web security now.

$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
