It was a mid 1980's 42' Present for an asking price of $45. The layout was great and pretty much exactly what we are looking for, just not having to cut out both gunwales and the bow due to water intrusion and rot. lol
Keep looking and searching! Anyway - in my opinion and my humble experience- the first seen is never the right one.
