If it hasn't been recently painted you can tell. There were and are lots of ferro boats around here. It's pretty easy to spot the decent ones - they are few and far between but they do exist.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Sure does not seem like the broker was really trying to sell it. I guess they wanted to really represent the boat, I mean look at all the lovely water in the bildge. I love the pergo flooring on the sides of the v-birth. I wonder if all the ports were open due to smell?

That thing is weird, looks like an IOR boat and an air craft carrier had an illegitimate child. Perhaps it did not sell, but the broker put the ad up to say see I sold this, so I can sell anything!

Do you think boats like this are why it is so hard to get a live aboard slip in Hawaii?

Casey, since you "missed out" on that one - how about this?

It's a little smaller but it's also got a lower asking price.

50ft ferro cement

Dude, I was going to say that's the ugliest boat I've ever seen on Sailnet -- then I saw SloopJonB's post.

Now think about this.

Both are home built boats. In someone's mind they were dreams that they put a ton of hours into creating and actually getting onto the water.

I am fairly certain it did sell. You see quite a few boats like that here (as I am sure in most places). The thing is the cost to moor this boat in Hawaii is in the range of $600 to $2,000 per month (depending if you are in state run or private marina). The most places require you to do a "buoy run" proving your boat can run under power once every year. A lot of boats like this (no running engine) fail and then are kicked out of the marina (this boat looks to be in a state owned marina that requires buoy run). I am just thinking it would cost a lot of money and effort to get her going again, and was amazed she sold.

Damn, when I think how much my boat cost and this one is bigger and probably sails better with that water ballast - just like an Open 60.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
