Everything's negotiable though Nugent, eh!

Putting the price to one side for the moment, what about the boat itself?

Not a flying machine, obviously, but it has potential as a decent distance cruising boat perhaps, provided the tanks are a reasonable size?

It's an ugly old tug that you couldn't do much with and it's way overpriced. Not my idea of a project.
