Rainman is correct.
The boat was just sold again two months ago. There is a great magazine called Soundings. They ran an article about the S.S. Minow two months ago. It sold cheap. Around 100 k or so. Check out Soundings.com for more info.
The prior owner spent more than that restoring her back to original condition.
