It wasn't exactly what we wanted but we were made an offer we couldn't resist. It's okay, its a big 42' awesome state room, good front berth, nice size salon and galley, however, the galley is below deck - no windows. I'm trying to find info on it and the only pic on google is our boat - It is a Taiwan boat, they shipped primarily to CA and Formosa mostly made sail boats. I'm trying to find out what the fuel tanks are made of and ways to check for leaks in them. How to you like yours? Are you running into any issues or do you have any cool tricks or tips for this particular boat? Thanks - Lisa

I have a 1977, and I'm in love with her. She's got the original old black iron tanks. I haven't scoped the tanks yet, since I haven't found any indication of water, rust, or leaks. Plenty of windows in my galley.
Peace,
Melissa

Two Formosa 51 sailboats were used in the filming of the movie, Capt. Ron. Wooden masts on one and aluminum on the other. If you watch carefully you will notice that. One of them belonged to a friend in Kemah, TX a few years ago. Typical Taiwan issues with leaks, etc. but built like a truck.

Yep, just like 1970s Datsun pickup trucks.....
