Ah Sheet rock.
I assumed she was restored and having a nice life.
But out of sight / out of mind.
I feel sorry for her.
It is a shame to see it go to the dumpster.
I feel sorry for her too.
I've seen some chatter that suggests she may soon end up in the hands of a very experienced Mathis/Trumpy restorer. Don't count her out quite yet.
Restorer and OWNER?
It will be a shame for her to go aweigh. Even if somebody takes her as a personal boat.
Innisfail is in personal hands and doing well.
I've seen Innesfail, she used to sit on the New River here in Fort Lauderdale during the winter. Beautiful boat.
Sad to see The Seqoua in such a sad state of affairs, but I can only imagine the amount of money necessary to keep her in shape. You can see on the hull where they nailed (or screwed on) planks over the existing bottom as a make shift patch in the past.
