Maltese Falcon

Anyone else notice that the Maltese Falcon is for sale on Yachtworld? She comes up as the top listing if you simply search for "all sailboats".

I figure two or three of us Sailnetters should try to scrape together the $178,606,500 asking price and start a nice little charter business...or host the next big Sailnet party...or ???

Do you think the $500 on the end of the asking price is negotiable? I'm ok with the $178,606,000 but the last $500 is a bitch!

I think he's selling it because the ashtray is full. Maybe we can use that to leverage the price down.

I was looking for something a little bigger, with more complicated systems. Any ideas?
