    We live in Austin Texas on the Pedernales River. My husband refurbished a Snipe from the 1930s and then hardly used it. He wants to burn it now but I think it needs a home instead --we want to give it away free. Is anyone interested? You would have to come get it.

    He's close enough to have a look, is a serial boat builder and has so many contacts, he'll likely have a home for it, pretty quickly. You're correct, it needs a new lover, not a match.
