Oh, you may also need an Engineer.


and a Chief Engineer

An Electrical Engineer and offsider

Mechanical engineer and staff

Ancillary assistants to all Heads of Department and sundry Gofers, Polishers and Lickers de Bottie.

But, as I said, only 2 to sail it.

I think you should buy one. Or a Beneteau.

PS Looks like it was T-boned at the waterline amidships and there is one rough patchup job LOL Must have done it in the water and waiting to haul to buff it.
Mark - you sound just like my old man, who I have the greatest respect for, because there's wisdom in what he says! My eyes are on the Shipman 59, with family as crew. Just need a banker for a friend. Also, I loved your item on Pirates. Worked on making that area hopefully a lot safer in the years immediately following.
