Of course my offer is a cry for help.... I'm skint and the boat is killing me due to the fees in the marina! The boat is still up for sale through Yes Yachting but after speaking with Zoe she though my idea was great.
So far I have had the following offers - individually.
- a pen
- an oversized paperclip
- the contents of someone's basement
- 10 days per year in an appartment in Munich, for seven years.
I do of course live in hope of better offers.
Regarding your points on the boat. The battery came with the boat which I had for only a year, that was what I was meant to say. As opposed to the house batteries which are new.
The boat was originally built in Argentina, sailed around South America then across the Atlantic. The first owner was a very clued up sailor and put the windlass and anchor chain more amidships for the weight distribution. I was going to box-in the whole installation but ran out of time. I know the next issue - water coming in through the windlass opening. When put out to sea the anchor chain is unshackled and pulled inside and a cover is screwed in place.
I'm not saying the boat is perfect, I'm just saying I had to leave Spain in a hurry and I now need someone else to take it off my hands.
I didn't want to leave Spain, I don't want to sell the boat and even worse I'd much prefer money.... but if an exchange for something I can use, of equal value, makes me and the new owner happy then it can't be all that bad.
