I would like to be here to see a 98 years old fiberglass boat.

Unbelievable

I hear you mate I do like wooden boats but that 98 yo old girl is just to much boat for my needs, otherwise I would love to own her.
Now don't faint but the motor/sailors I have my eye on are...Ferro-Cement and so many folk run faster from FC boats than they do from wooden boats. I guess they forget...A well built boat, in any material, is still a well built boat...Like yours, she a beaut
