I received the following terse note from a broker today.

 

Sad news about the Downeaster 32 in North Carolina.  Major structural damage found and the boat is being scrapped.  The motor and battery are being purchased by a prospect in Washington state.

 

Not sure which named boat this is but I probably have old pictures stored somewhere.  Seems like some DE32's need major work these past few years, because of neglect and the past decade's economy.

Any clue where in NC this is being scrapped? I recently purchased a DE32 and am around this area. Would be good to to see if I could find anything usable from it.

Sorry I got toooooo busy to even check back.  I heard the engine was salvaged but not sure what else or where.  The marine guy said it was caused by the hurricane/floods (which big one, I forget now).  So at least that part is good news, because I wouldn't want to hear of a DE32 sinking from a voyage.
