You might want to put on your flame suit. These threads on "x boat for x money" turn up a lot, and some people get snarky in their replies. Take it with a grain of salt - we're all pretty nice (usually)!
I'm also interested in hearing what people will say. I'm currently experiencing the learning process right now.
