I could see her moored here in Porto Montenegro.

A friend has a pair of solar panels on hinges. They hang from the lifelines of her 40' sailboat...

The theory was that she'd adjust the angle throughout the day to maximize power input. It didn't happen. She puts them horizontal and leaves them that way unless in transit.

Doesn't seem cheap to me for a 50 year old boat. The listing indicates she is well traveled not "factory fresh".

Interesting, a year younger than Florence A. I see three things that bring the price down. 1st in my view is that it is a small ship style vessel not a modern floating house. Current market seems to me to favor boats with lots of cabin space over sea keeping. 2nd problem is that the market loves FRP more than steel. Me I am a steel boat guy. It welds. I understand how to do it.
3rd I think is the engine. Gardner is my dream engine. But I work on them. Most people will look at the engine and walk because they are not "common" and there is not a dealer in every large city. What would "I" do if it needs>>>
Now I might be wrong (often am) but that is why I think it is priced less than you might think.
