Found this on the internet for free the other day. Pulled it 4 miles to the boat ramp and got to work.
New boards on top and its ready for its new life in our pond!
Saved me a pile of money and the floats are like new.
My Wife did a very nice job painting it!
New plastic decking and I can work on my tan (Or in my case burn, since I am albino...)

I'll say its a great find. The floats alone are worth are probably worth $2000 if you had to buy new. The rotten lumber you are replacing is probably worth $10,000 LOL.

There was also a 20' gang walk that came with it but it was submerged and so heavy that three of us couldn't budge it. I would really like to go back and try to get it but it may not be feasible. I might take the tractor over there and see if I can pull it up out of the water but I dont want to mess this guys yard up.

There was no salvaging anything once I fired up the saw so if that lumber was worth $2000 then I had the most expensive fire that I have every created yesterday at the pond fire pit. lol
I had to cut all of the rusty bolts with a huge pair of bolt cutters after I got the boards cut out of there. lol

It would be worth the price to pay a wrecker to come out and try it if he can get a straight pull from the driveway or road.
