Old Lifeboat converted with Gaff rig!

I love the looks!

Got the specs here
"it has a gaff main sail / jib / staysail...length 22 plus tiller @ bowsprit @ 4 ft. / beam @ 7ft. / draft 18" / displacement ? 2500lbs. Full keel. larch lap strake on oak ribs / plywood deck and cabin. Sailed ...lake simcoe ont. / lake ontario / port hardy"

I asked to go see it. I wonder if those lifeboats had a ballast? Wonder how it sails, probably very poorly close-hauled. But I like it! Ahah!
Hey! If I buy it will you call me stupid?
