Not at all. I enjoy the forum, this thread and the lively debates that go on here. Since we are, to an extent self policing, I take it upon myself to point out something that can be seen as counterproductive and express my views on that as well as the topic at hand.

That's the most yanmar looking Perkins I've ever seen. The nameplate on top sort of gives it away, as well as the bolted on cover on the intake manifold.

I see you have been here a whole month. Rich & I have been here 10 years. I respect Rich for his knowledge of boat system and his insight on other topics. We don't need to agree on everything. It would be a dull forum if everyone did. Hopefully after awhile you'll see it's no big deal here. Rich and I have met and conversed at boat shows.

Re: Free Formosa 41 Ketch project boat.

As far as the engine goes, the rain water should not do it much harm unless it gets to the breather or air intake. Both of which are high up. Perhaps if the OP has access to it, pull the engine water intake hose, or lower thru-hull, open the valve which will the water to only fill that high.

Re: Free Formosa 41 Ketch project boat.

This free boat may be a perceived good deal for somebody. (Wow, free boat, let's roll, what can go wrong?)

On the other hand, some boats may be a negative value.
(Cost more to fix than what it is, or will be worth.)

I would not touch it with a ten foot pole.
So much easier to get a floating boat ready to sail and after every thing is said and done, cheaper in the long run.

True, I've only been active here for a short while, and for the most part I've been impressed with the civil tone of the various threads. That's why I was surprised to see two people picking at each other - go back and read what you guys wrote. I certainly am not here to pick a fight, and if I offended you then please accept my apologies. I'm glad you respect each other, but realize how your tone, at least in this thread, can give the wrong impression.

Re: Free Formosa 41 Ketch project boat.

Hi Folks,
I haven't been watching this this thread lately 'cause working on my own CT-41 and because the boat now has a new owner. Jay has been working on it since about the second week I posted the offer. He is now full into it and has reorganized his life to get the project going.

I know a couple of you have already met Jay on other forums and are giving him your support. Thanks for that. So now possibly we can let the comments on if it is a deal for someone die, and replace them with ideas and our own experiences to help another guy energetic enough (yes, also crazy enough) to see this huge task to completion.

Rock on, Jay. Hope to see you on the water one of these days.

Re: Free Formosa 41 Ketch project boat.

Don't know the scope of the project.
However if you don't check it out you'll never know, right?
These boats, as well as most, have there known flaws and difficulties.
It wouldn't be a project if it didn't.
Potentially, it's an awesome vessel.
