That is like some type of mad crazy genius! 

Love that paint job!

'Easier for towing'.....except for the mast that will have to drag out the back or will be sticking up in the air above your car!

Radixon - wait 'til you get home to have a look: I'm not sure whether you'll be thinking that it's a bargain then!

The fella really must have had some very specific storage space issues!

OMG that has to be seen to be believed!

How the hell are you meant to do anything in that boat with a massive "wall" half way, bad enough with a thwart in the boat and not that!

If it is where the thwart is it wont get any more in the way, apart from
running control lines back, which i doubt is high up the priorities

It would be hell to tow, with so much weight on the towbar.

I love the novel solution to the centreboard case spanning the join.

Also great phrase in the seller's description:
"I think I have all of the bits."
