a splash of epoxy and a coat of paint and it will be as good as new.

Well, I suppose I've stripped all the woodwork out of part glass part wood International Moths and Canoes and rebuilt them, so someone might want to do the same thing with a Solo. If I were them I wouldn't start with one that's had all the fittings removed too though...

That has 5th November written all over it. It looks too far gone for 'flowerbed'.and anything useful appears to have already vanished.

The prognosis might be different if its #1 of the class or otherwise provably of historic interest, although I suspect the restoration would have a certain ship of Theseus flavour to it.

Therein lies the problem: I reckon its a glass fibre shell. If you can get someone to pay a tenner to take it away you're probably a lot more than that better off...
