1956 Helton Runabout.
How do I evaluate the "true" condition of my recently purchased runabout?
I just purchased a 1956 Helton Runabout.
It seems to be in fairly good condition.
I have only found rot in one small spot along the top edge of the gunwale.
The finish needs to be redone and I am unsure what method to use?
Sand and apply multiple coats of Poly, inside and out?
I will forward pics to anyone who is will to give a poor country boy advice on how to get this beauty lake ready.
Thanks in advance
P.S. The windshield is broken, I also need to replace that.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
