Just wanted to let you know about the new DIY Wood Boat Club.

This won’t affect this great page of yours.

However, it is hoped that the new “Club” will give you much more control over what is posted and how it is presented.

Make it easier to post Photos and Videos, ask and answer questions in the Forum.

And above all create a social network for Wooden Boat Enthusiasts.

You can control your own privacy settings and it's free so why not sign up now, give it a (no obligation) try.

Rob, I hope you still are around. There was a listing for the Boat as a Lien sale. I fell in love with her right away. I would like to buy her out right if you would let me. I will take good care of her. Of course you could visit any time you liked.

Thanks in Advance,

She is a magnificent boat Rob, even with out the topsides paint.

She is the same age as me but clearly in better condition.

It’s hard to believe now that she was still fishing under sail back in 1951.

Times may have changed but she still looks good.
