Just remarking on what was written in the ad. Perhaps my sarcasm gland is weak today.

Greetings,
Capt. K. You've hit the nail on the head " Bought for the right price,". I'm not equating cleanliness with reliability at all but if one is selling any item the best way to get top dollar is to present said item in it's best light. You're selling your car. The few $$ spent for detailing will very much contribute to a successful sale. As you say, a little elbow grease and a spot of paint would go a long way in my eyes to make this particular vessel more appealing. Alas, in this vessels case, I think maintenance has been lacking. Simply no pride of ownership. I stand corrected. Re-read the listing and it states maintenance has been performed by certified mechanic. Still......
In my case, my ER is not the black hole of Calcutta by any means and every time I visit, a re-furb' of the ER moves a few slots up the to-do list but is usually knocked back down by more pressing issues.
Just a couple of "similar" vessels in the $95K price range with nice ER's. So neat and tidy is not impossible....

Yes, I was puzzled at the lack of a hull hole for the Ferryman diesel thruster.

Three ifs
  • IF the steel is good
  • IF the ER and an mechanicals could be made acceptable
  • IF the electrical circuits were done so as to prevent the steel from rotting away
It would be a fun vessel. And it is FD!

How can you tell without a photo of the whole stern?

Ahhhhhhhhhh, well maybe it is because the forepeak, forefoot and forecastle seem to intersect where forethought and foresight foretell the foremast on the foredeck with forebodence.
