True - but if the hull still floats and the sails can catch some wind, then you're in business - the rest of it's decoration. If the person who gets the boat can manage to get it to sail for a year, and is content, then good for them. If not - well at least they gave it a shot and learnt something.
Let's not forget that someone who wants to go out in the bay for a few hours on an afternoon doesn't need anything more than a hull, mast, sail and a lifejacket. Diesels are nice, compasses are handy, VHF's are good, and GPS is the cat's ass, but none of them are necessary.
