Sounds to me like 1/40th might not be such a great price for this
boat.
Personally I've turned down FREE boats... some require too much work,
some are not worth the work to begin with.

Unless this boat is special run away. Right now you can buy perfectly
good turn-key boats for 1/8th what they used to sell for... Or maybe
you enjoy years of scut work & spritzing with hazardous chemicals, go
for it but offer 1/140th of the prior cost.
