Re: planning to buy: steel hull / wooden deck

Hi again,
by now I flew to France and had a look at the boat. She is in an amazing state regarding her age. No corrosion at all, the wooden deck seems to have caused no trouble at all in the last 30 years..
In short: my dream boat!
Unfortunately I was not the only one impressed, and the other one had deeper pockets..
So she is gone!

That's a pity...

Still, you know what you're looking for so keep looking. Something else is sure to turn up.

A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
