Yes, I have to agree. He did say there was some rust. Nothing that can't be fixed.

My favorite line...

"Good live-aboard or fix up and sail the world, fish, this is a documented vessel."

So, if you just want to "live-aboard", there's really nothing to fix up. And, by the way, it is a "documented vessel." The document may be a condemnation notification, but it is certainly a document.

Re: Post the Worst "For Sale" Picture You've Seen.

Its too old to find but when I bought Magic the first lines in the auction said "mast and rig appear to be intact" The picture on the auction listing showed the mast in two pieces broke above the spreaders with half hanging down to the ground. all the rigging was cut by the salvage team.

I can not see any problem with that image. It looks normal down here in Oz, perhaps you have a different perspective up there in the northern hemisphere

I have entered a bid for you, when do you want to collect it or which way up should we load it into the container for you, don't want it arriving upside down.
