Project Trawler in Rome

My wife and I were in Rome last week and I spotted this vessel just below the Ponte Vitorrio Emanuele II bridge. I was struck by the resemblance to my last boat, a 44 ferro-cement trawler.

Thanks.... we've got it down to a few models. A little more time in the salt mines and I can retire and get to my money....

Depending on your planning you may find that 'less is more' and you don't need to toil at the salt mine as long as you think.
The best of Irish Luck to you.
