We just accepted a 50 foot ferro ketch with new standing rigging and rebuilt Ford Lehman engine!
This vessel requires all internal carpentry, the hydraulic steering reconnected and new electronics, but she's an extremely sound vessel and looking for a captain.
What do we mean? The right person with energy and resourcefulness, who would really love this boat, can have her. All you have to do is move aboard and fit her out ready for cruising (fun for you) and accepting operational station as a disaster relief vessel (as an IRG Captain). Interested?
IRG can help you source equipment and we have paint and parts in our workshop to help you make this fine vessel seaworthy! We'd love to have this vessel operational next year.
Just contact The Captain and let's talk about it.
