most knackered rib that goes to sea

looking through the boats and outboards last night I was looking at the various states some of the boats are and it got me wondering if anyone out there would like to claim top spot for the oldest/tattiest boat they feel safe in?

Does anyone have a boat they hate and why??

mike
yes I do need to get out more!

There's no way that you can hate a rib, no matter the condition.

I remember as a kid my father had some old tub of a boat that had the leakiest bilges ever - my job was to operate the manual bilge pump all the time. The outboard(old johnson) used to give you an electric shock every time you touched it. Despite that it was the highlight of my life whenever we went out on it. The smell of 2 strokes and WD40 is all it needs to take me back.

Mine, because it is crap and falling to pieces despite very little use. Martha, I beg to differ, right now I hate every sodding orange millimetre of mine.
