Are they parting the boat out before they totally scrap it or is someone really that stupid?

What about the missing stuffing boxes...

Pretty soon, there will not be much left.

Seriously, a huge thanks to oil&water for the parts he has supplied to me and other Trojan owners! And a nice bonus was getting to meet three generations of his family!

About all that is left are the forward salon windows, the sliding door, two fiberglass mufflers, rub rail, bow rail sections, and forward hatches.

I am just happy that she lives on as a donor boat to so many Trojan owners.
