Came across this Hells Bay in a guys back yard, he hasn't used it since he got it from his deceased father years ago, has no plans to use it, trying to convince him to sell it.
I cried inside just looking at this magnificent beast lying there abused and forgotten

Wonder what it's worth sitting there like that? I might spend a couple grand and take a chance but that looks to be a complete restore.

Mind if I ask what state this is in. I sold my old HB to an older gentleman and I would love to find it again. This looks a lot like her.. Hard to tell though.. Mine was a waterman with the original light gray hull they did

It’s a HB, built to last. Blow the damn leaves out, pressure wash and go fish. Sun will take care of stains eventually.

BTW, I believe this pic is from an old ad years ago...
Pics are from yesterday

OP’ers location is Tampa bay. Might be correct? Start google earth search now. You might be able to find location before leaves turn to compost. That’s a lot of searching. Or maybe he will reveal location.

I'd definitely try to buy it from him, even if it did mean a complete restoration -- obviously as long as it made sense financially. But then again, I'm a sucker for a project.

Side note: I know if my dad left me something like that, I would prefer to see someone else restore it to something he would have appreciated, rather than having it rot away in my yard. I would be surprised if he isn't willing to sell if he truly doesn't have any plans to ever fix it.
