Cheers and arigato....
I cannot comment because mine is only in her mid forties..... Given that i payed $4k for her I shall not be to agrieved if i get say....$15k back ?. I have had a ship load of fun, with her ...she has been very forgiving and is no worse for wear than when I bought her. The most work I have ever done on her is nothing to do with ferro....if you chase back over the years on my posts .. : )
Put this in perspective......skills ..lots Money
not a lot. I have spent 5 years building a bigger steel
boat. But scroungned just about everything (all payed for is a big one for me...going cruising with a massive debt and the possibility of interest rises is not relaxing). Probably could have bought and rebuilt another ferro in three years all payed for.
Its a funny
thing.....You buy a brand new yacht for say 250 k...because you want a good resale value on it....
And on resale two years later you have dropped perhaps 80 k....
That 80 k is the price
of a second hand yacht all up...( I know generalisation...not everyone etc etc) but to those who have not a lot of money
and some reasonable skills....YOUR dream is far easier to acheive than the people with a heap of money and a fixed way of life.
Sure ...go ferro ...keep your brain and eyes open, keep your investment dollars low and enjoy yourself.
