Default Buy her from the scrappers??

I've kept quiet about all this, partially out of depression, partially out of despair.
How come she was sold so quietly? Is the value so low that she's worth more to scrap than to rebuild??
OR is this part of MAL's plan to make certain no one else can bring Steamboatin' back to the rivers?
Doesn't matter what any of us thought of her design, she was more "pure steam" powered than our beloved DQ and strides ahead of the AQ.
And no one has mentioned the purchase price.
What gives????
I ask too many questions.
Steamcerely,
David D.
