Pounds Sterling, gold bullion, or "real," real estate. (which I know is technically not cash, but a few hundred, no make that a few Thousand acres of prime land preferably next to a large lake (not under...NEXT!) will do, as far as the cash, maybe pay the tax bill for the next hundred years of so would be nice)

It appears to have a fore hatch placed unusually far forward, too. So you can run the windlass from the V-berth?

I dunno, really pretty boat. If it's for sale, buy it quick!

it looks a lot like Phil Hutchinson's ( T Hutch's pop ) old Veritas.. was a PJ 47? or therebouts.. raced against her a few times in Marion to Bermuda

edit: write-up in the Washington Post post 1995 race calls it a Custom 46, but I seem to recall him calling it a PJ when I was talking to him in Bermuda. the color scheme and deck look very familiar..

I don't recall ever seeing an S&S boat with a huge flush deck and tiny cabin house like that?
.
Oh yes. There was this one:

Former 'Rubin', later named Sharki. Sank off Cuxhaven some years ago and was salvaged.
I wouldn't be surprised if the boat above is not also one of the sixteen Rubins HO Schümann had.

Pretty boat for sure, but what a tiny cockpit. Makes me wonder if the other boats laugh at it....
