Wingover - Sorry, never even heard of that particular Formosa. I imagine she's quite a boat! My friend sailed his Formosa 56 all over the world to the tune of 70,000 miles. In his own words, she was a "Taiwan Turkey" and the ultimate "Lead Sled", yet he loved that boat as a world cruiser. They also felt very safe on her in all conditions. The larger Formosa's were typically built with strong consideration to such use. Yet the reputation for leaks and other "soft spots" are well deserved.

Is this boat for sale online somewhere?

Is the hull all fiberglass or it has a core? I know the deck is cored.
