"Needs a good clean and tidy up" ?

That's laughable.

Dude, that thing looks like it got sunk and refloated, and it may have sunk in a toilet...

Wow, that almost looks like a joke.

Faster: $35k NZ isn't quite as bad as cdn$35k or usd$35k, but it's still a lot for a ton of mold.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.

That boat can now literally be referred to as a POS.

Impressive in a sickening kind of way.

Re: This stuff drives me nuts....

That is just criminal... I started looking at the picts thinking, Jeff's spot on, beautiful old racer... then my heart sank. Very sad to see... but you could easily see it happening... lots of humid weather, tons of birds, and NOBODY BUT NOBODY looking at the poor thing.

Re: This stuff drives me nuts....

How much time elapsed between the first and latter photos? At first I thought that's just bird poop and mold ... A pressure washer and a chlorine solution could tackle that. But in those photos you can see a lot of hardware and fasteners weeping through the deck. It seems like it would take a long time for that to happen.

Re: This stuff drives me nuts....

This illustrates one of the major problems with on-line listings. You never know how old the pictures of the great looking boat you find actually are.

I say it sunk, and I am not convinced that it did not sink in a toilet, but it might have only been a really nasty part of the marina.

Re: This stuff drives me nuts....

Location probably not a help either. Unless you are a Timeruan yourself, then sailing her home up the east coast of the NZ south island could make for an interesting time.

btw .... Fast, NZ (and Australian) boats are pretty much always more expensive than North America or Europe. it's why there is such an active trade in importing boats from the US, although as the Oz dollar falls from its lofty perch of the past few years that situation may change.
