MISS YA YAH
by Bob Corson
Named after my Great Grand Daughter, it is a 14' 1958 Penn Yan Mahogany Captivator.
It is in decent condition but needs attention.
I am 78 years old and generally work on Ford Mustangs and so am not an experienced boat man.
I do need a side plank repair near the transom, just under the splash rail.
The so-called plank is 1-1/8" wide and 5/16" thick outer plank sets directly on a layer of plastic which is over 3/16" X 3" cedar on 7/16" oak ribs on 6" centers.
These are all sound except for the 5/16" outer plank. (only about an inch long piece is "punky"
This is directly under the splash rail, which I have partly removed.
I have long wanted a small three deck runabout that I remember as a kid...
It will be powered by a 25HP 1994 Mercury outboard.
My best to all,
Bob Corson in Maine
