Back in the mid-1970's I came close to buying a 6 meter that was for sale in Venice, Florida.
The owners had a similar story to yours which was that she had been built for Norwegian Royalty and brought to the States for some major ragatta.
Almost every frame was snapped at the turn of the bilge and rotten at the keel pockets, so, having just sistered the frames on my folkboat, the idea of getting involved in another sistering was more than I was willing to deal with at the time.
My only regret was that I never did a sail trial on the boat. I would have loved to see how she sailed.
