Be leary of a boat that has a 1 1/2" gasoline pump sitting next to an open manhole....that pump wasn't put there because there was no where else to store it.
The trouble with a boat like the WINIFRED is its neither "fish nor fowl"......too big and heavy to be considered a pleasure boat, that means it requires a regular shipyard and their high costs to work on it but most shipyards won't fool with pleasure boats which is what this is.
The WINIFRED is an awfully big hole in the water and it will take a lot of money to fill that hole.
Looking at the pictures it looks like the only thing the boat has going for it is the paddlewheel.
