Bone Yard Boats features FREE BOATS in nearly every issue -- actually I can't think of an issue without FREE BOATS.

This is not a complete list of FREE boats.

Summer 2011 (Issue No. 52)

FREE BOAT: 1960 MORGAN JOHNSON 47' SPORT FISH

JUST IN (11/01/11):  Missed out on LOAFER IV back in May?

It has to be moved as soon as practical..." More than 50 photos.  <PICS+INFO>

UPDATE 9/5/11:  STILL AVAILABLE!  "She's built with mahogany planking on oak frames. ...a great family boat -- just like many of us recall fondly from childhood. She's got a single 350 CI Crusader, which moves her along at about 15 or 16 knots. ...I'd like to pass her on, for free, to someone who has the means to bring her back to life."  (CT)  <PICS+INFO>
