Nick,
I understand your financial plight - I owned a boat in the bay area and know what it costs. However, have you researched the cost of salvaging your boat if it sinks at the dock, or worse yet, somewhere out in the bay? Additionally, don't forget the value of just about everything inside the boat. Contact BoatUS or USCG and find out just how many boats have gone down because of corroded bronze. Bronze does some funny things - for example, I have seen fittings (esp underwater types) that appear shiny and solid; however, a light tap of the hammer revealed completely oxidized (read that as POWDER) on the INSIDE of the fitting! This is probably stray current destruction - which runs rampant in many areas. If there is any way you can haul (do some yard shopping, including up the delta) and take care of this now, you will be able to sleep a lot better. Even if you have to eat beans and rice for a while...

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
