“We’re trying to get rid of all this and get legitimate buyers who are seriously interested in the boat. We have three very serious looking gentlemen who will be coming to see the boat in the next week or so. I’m interested in that,” Ouimet said. “I think the interior is also very well put together for a ship of its time. Whether you are going fishing or taking the family out, I think you have everything around a great boat.”
