Yesterday we received several emails from folks complaining that offering nice holiday gift ideas that are $200K boats made the hobby look like is was full of “Got Rocks”. I guess the 5 gallon bucket idea for $5 was to expensive for some, or the Monkey fists, or varnish kit, Larry The Lyman book to much? ….So, you asked for it. This is your chance to live like a “Got Rocks”, for FREE. That’s right, Mr Got Pebbles, you can parade around in your Mullet cut.. business in the front, party in the back, and complain about how much your yacht costs now, just like the rest of us “Richy Riches”.
A very nice Owens 40 footer. Yours. FREE! Park it under the Bear Can tree and surprise the family. Sure you owe 3 months back rent on your trailer. Who cares, you and “Star” your new girlfriend you met at the bar last night can move onto your yacht you hooked her with. Just imagine how cool you will look driving up to the marina in your I Rock Z ..You and Star, while all your brats and X are back in the trailer park! All ya gotta do is avoid the marina manager cause you owe him some rent.
All kidding aside, this is a cool Christmas gift idea and a very cool 40+ft Owens Flagship Tahitian, 1964, available for free. I wish it was closer to Virginia.
Apparently it has had a new marine-ply epoxied bottom installed about five years ago. There are some minor engine issues, but the vessel is too good to
scrap, judging from the owner’s comments. It has twin 327’s that kinda work. To be clear, even when these sort of boats run, they will need some attention. But it does appear that the owner cares about this boat. The drama playing out is that the boat is in Ontario and needs to be hauled out ASAP because of the ice coming, and the boat yard is not going to haul it out because of insurance issues. And since it won’t start, it either needs to be towed, or stated and moved , OR GASP SCRAPED! If you want to be the Ultimate Santa this year. Hook up the trailer hitch on your I Rock Z and head up to Canada PDQ! Tell your Old Lady to clear an area under the tree.
