Gift Boat--Worth it?

This was my brother''s response to my inquiries about details (I''ll spare you his preaching on the lifestyle a sailboat offers (it is actually quite Capt Jack Sparrow)):

"the boat is exceptionally sea worthy, its set up now to sail anywhere you want, auto
pilots,dingeys, all sails,new one cylinder motor,burns about a pint an hour,you drink more rum than that on the boat, the hull is made by albin,swedish,the saab of sails,heavy,sturdy, and eay to sail, one or two ,or four, it has a queen size bed in the center,it had a head but i thru it out, and use the bucket, easer to maintain."

At this point, I''m trying to figure out if I can wiggle some time off to get to Alaska and retrieve it (he has a plan). Even if I get stuck with a lemon of a boat (which I''m prepared for) I figure I''m not out any cash and have a great vacation.

When I''m bemoaning this albatross in a few months, you can also say I told you so.

Thanks again!
