I bought this boat 10 years ago intending to restore it. After further research and discussions with several experienced wood boat builders and restorers I decided to wait until retirement to tackle the project. I tucked the boat away in a corner of my barn to await a more favorable time to give it the attention it needs. Now, an impending move from the east coast to the west coast means I need to let this boat go, unrestored. If you're interested, let me know and I can tell you more about the boat over the phone, etc. If the boat does not sell intact I will be parting it out. So if you're interested in any parts off the boat, let me know and I'll keep you in mind.
