That'd be the one pictured above, Bamboo. It would need some major work to be a liveaboard based on what Sheril, the owner, has indicated on the Yahoo group.

I'm sending a couple of pictures one was taken before we pulled the boat and
the rest are history. My late husband and I bought this boat in 2003 in hopes
of living out our dreams on her. When we had the boat pulled for a quick
bottom job, it turned out that the previous owners hadn't done their jobs in
the past. At that point we got out the grinders and started grinding. We
completed most of the fairing and were ready to apply a protective layer of
fiberglass, when my husband found out that he had cancer. We hastily built a
trailer to haul the boat from Rockport, TX to Paradise, TX (central Texas),
after he passed away. I've been working on it when I can, but I've just had
my 3rd abdominal surgery in the last 2 years. This is why I'm selling it. I'm
not sure I can complete the work on it, much-less be able to handle the boat
For the boat I have all the fiberglass cloth, West System Resin, Hardeners,
and fillers to complete the job. I have 6 InterProtect 2000E Kits to make 6
gal of barrier coating. 2-gal Interlux Ultra-Kote Black, 2-gal Interlux Micron
Extra Red, 2-gal Pettit Easy Poxy White for above the water line, 2-qts Pettit
Easy Poxy Burgundy for stripe under rub-rail, and 1 qt Pettit Easy Poxy Black
for the water line.
I have a new airhead for the boat(just received a few weeks ago), New 8-ft
Walker dingy, older dingy of unknown origin(but paddles well), new BBQ Kettle
grill(still in box), New Powersurvivor 160E Water maker and the extended
cruising kit with additional filters(still in original boxes), new water
pump(still in box). All the instruments have been sent to the originating
company and put in like-new condition complete with new thru hulls and wind
instruments. New solar panel(still in plastic). A new 2003 Honda 15hp
outboard with less than 2 hours on it. New headliner material and spray glue
(should be enough of each to finish the job with spare.
I really have so much stuff, it's hard to mention it all.
The boat is located on the trailer on cushioned blocks. The trailer is
street legal, but requires permitting. All of the wires coming down the mast
were just cut with a knife, so the mast could be removed quickly by the boat
yard when removing the mast. I've also updated the documentation on the boat.
One person did respond to the email. Bamboo is a 1986 Gemini 3000.
