I agree.... I looked at a couple of ferro boats when I was boat hunting... they all appeared in good shape... one wasa 40 footer and the guy only wanted 5k, the sails and equipment on her were worth more than that he just wanted to get out from under her so that he could stop paying mooring fees... I just couldn't bring myself to do it... really I should have gone for one of them, I'm sailing now but at a much greater cost.
