Hi Rusty, thanks for the invite. Unfortunately, one's dreams have to end sooner or later. My 'dream boat' needs a new loving owner and given my circumstances, I need to sell her asap. She is structurally rock solid but does need some TLC and a few £ or $ spent, mainly on some form of engine and other bits and pieces. It saddens me to think that I am asking less than half what she cost me in materials alone but such is life. But she is a fabulous boat to be at sea with .... surfing 4 to 5 meter swells in the Bay of Biscay ..... pure magic. Regards Tony.
