    Default 6 metre yachts in Algeirs

    Apparently there are some Sixes consisting of 5 boats abandoned in
    1962 during the French exodus from Algiers.

    In 1990, they were still there, slowly deteriorating, on the quay of the Port des Embiers in Oran (southwest corner of the port).

    Has anyone here recently been to (or lives there) in Oran, Algiers and can report back here on if the boats are still there (long long shot) an condition?

    If they have been there for 21 years the must be in a rather poor condition?
