Always thought this type of sink would make a nice cool ship.

That would be awesome... although being a "lab sink" I'm not sure about the kind of bugs that are there. Not as good in the beer.

Its stainless, it will clean up. Even a fast application of bleach(I know it pits bleach, but also kills germs)

Yeah, I know. Just makes my stomach turn at first sight.
If you can get it, go for it! If you don't want it, get it and I'll swing on down there...

I'd be wary of a manky looking lab sink. If it were a sink from one of my labs, you would never EVER want to drink or eat anything that ever came into contact with it, even after extensive cleaning.

However, if you're looking to get something new and something that's a little more compact and easy to work with than a sink, you can buy the Arkay developing trays new for a bit more than $100. This place has a 26x30x3" tray (10 gallons full capacity) for $177

and a bunch of other versions ranging in volume from a couple of gallons to 15 gallons.

Found my coolship. Stainless steel, 42" x 24" x 10", should hold about ~43 gallons. Picking her up this week for $250.

Awesome that American homebrewers are starting to embrace making coolship ales. I gotta do some spontaneous ferments soon
