Re: considering a ferro cement boat
That boat has been around here for a long time. If there was anything major wrong with her, it would have shown long before now. How much use do you have to get out of her, at that price, to get your moneys worth out of her? You can't go wrong. She even has a Yanmar not the useless Volvo, common back in those days . Go for it, and enjoy. After a few months, she will owe you nothing. You will have got more than your moneys worth out of her. The gear is worth far more than the asking price.
