6 Free Boats You Can Claim For Free in Washington and Oregon
How does that old boat owner joke go? The two happiest days of boat ownership are the day you buy it and the day you sell it. In the cases, I’m about to present to you the saying might go something like, "get it off my lawn…I just want it gone”. In other words, these boats are FREE.
You see these eyesores in yards all over Washington and Oregon.
The free boats your about to see were once someone’s pride and joy, they were things of beauty and created memories for many families and owners, but in the end, they were neglected and put out to the pasture. Now, their last hope is to be rescued by someone with a lot of time and money to restore them to their original glory and seaworthiness. Are you that person?
