Want a Maine built 1917 wooden sardine carrier. Hmm are you nuts?

Sheathed in fibreglass ?? 12 layers with monel staples? Hmm well maybe. That stops the worry about worm. No sign of hogging.

Big ole Detroit that starts on the button. Hmm heard it and it sounds good.

Sails OK not going to win any races but it would look good at Antigua Classics.

Hmm Maybe not nuts.

Where and how much....?

At anchor Hog Island Grenada. Listed at $130,000 on Apollo Duck Grenada but the owner is a very motivated seller and has been trying to sell for 2 years. . She will take much less.

I think $25,000 in Benjamins might be enough.

The owner cruised on the boat with her husband who died. She is as unusual as the boat. Way to much for her to handle on her own.

Grind off the outside to get a good bond then build up layers of grip so the end result is a grip boat with a nice wooden interior.Back ih 5he 70 someone sheathed a fishing smack with Ferro cement and happily put to sea...and returned
