One that got away.

This is Apostle, The Contessa 32 that I was seriously thinking about buying in the spring. Initial estimates made it look feasible to buy her in Florida and bring her back over here. She's a lovely boat and sails like a dream, but Mike, her owner, has been too busy to give her the attention she needs and so she needs a lot of work to bring her back to her former glories.

In the end I decided that it would simply cost too much to ship her over and do the work required. Hopefully someone will see the potential soon, cos she's gorgeous.
