Re: Does She Qualify? Well...

The two dinghys are 75 HP 19' Boston Whalers. Originally She was the TOP Secret, and the dinghys were "cloak & dagger". She was constucted in 1964 in Miami Florida, First owned by the Tycoon Jim DeSpain of Pepsicola. It has changed hands many times, I have already promoted sale of Her and recieved confirmation. She uses a crew of:

1 Captian (60K)
2 Navigator (40K)
3 Cook (36K)
4,5,Skippers(17k)
6 Finisher (24K)
7,8 Deckhand.(11K) All each yearly salary.


Of course the personell stays with the Ship in most cases, depending on Port of this World vessel.

The expense of keeping such a Girl is only justifyable for floating office purposes, as mail at sea can be delivered on the Heli acceptor, and besides, 374 gallons/hour at 13 knots is economical for a 113 foot Vessel.

She starred on Miami Vice when the season was current.

It cost 753,000 in 1964. Today about 1.37M

She will be scraped within 5 years is my best estimation.

I really would like some plans for a 24' world class saling vessel that can withstand seas at the length.

Thanks for the response!
