Probably scurvy also. Anyone know about what year the Limey's discovered the importance of the lime? My kids and I were talking about that last night actually.

Greetings,
Mr. m. Here ya go...


limey (n.)1888, Australian, New Zealand, and South African slang for "English immigrant," short for lime-juicer (1857), a nickname given in derisive reference to the British Navy's policy (begun 1795) of issuing lime (n.2) juice on ships to prevent scurvy among sailors. U.S. use is attested from 1918, originally "British sailor, British warship;" extended to "any Englishman" by 1924.

"Murphy's Law" was anchored next to me in Stuart, FL on Saturday. More boat than I will ever need. But fun to dream about the adventures you could have.

True tri-deck arrangements below 90ft loa always look "unorganic" and top-heavy to me.


I would expect stability problems in rough seas, unless they are massively ballasted.

The British Navy didn't adopt the practice of giving sailors lime juice until late in the 18th century, though the Portuguese explorer Vasco de Gama had know the same trick in the late 15th century. In between, long voyages had an expected death rate of up to 50% due to scurvy. Like the US slow adoption of testing and prevention while other nations lead the way.

Cheaper to sell the boat than to fill up the fuel tank?

I love that boat, would love to take that project on, need at least 450k to do it right i bet, hard to know without looking. This pesky job of mine and three ankle biters get in the way of such endeavors though.

For what I have in my current boat I could have bought this and brought it up to snuff. The real drawback is the time involved and the 8.5’ draft when you are done. And the fact that it really needs a bigger crew than the two of us since it draws too much for some of the ICW and long offshore passages need more than two aboard to be safe.

Interesting boats

Has a very extensive hydraulic system. Interesting for sure.

BTW, the broker told me that ďMy understanding is the guy who bought might have abandoned itĒ so I guess he didnít have the $450k necessary to restore that 40 year old monster.

When you a broker, especially United, writes a description like that in the listing, then you suspect the price may actually be high.

And IMO $450k is a drop in the bucket when all is said and done unless you are extraordinarily handy and have 10 years to spare, then maybe it could cover most of it. Having a decent yard do it all is going to be in the 7 figure range without blinking an eye.

'Murphy's Law' is a $1 boat to this buyer.
Whoever's paying the dock fee and taxes would be ahead on paper just to be rid of her.
If I lived near that area that's what I'd offer!
