Not suspicious at all, making the case, and about the need for American flagged boats…
I’ve always had a soft spot for the bilge-keeled Westerly Centaur design by Laurent Giles and think it is one of the most underrated cruising boats around.
As it happens, there’s a Centaur project boat in Gig Harbor looking for someone who’d appreciate it with $500 in hand and the wherewithal to sort out the needful.
From the looks of the pictures all the nasty stuff has already been done which would make the actual needed work something of a slam dunk.
If it were down here in America’s paradise I’d snap it up faster that you can say VolksCruiser.
