For sale, a 1957 Thompson Lapstrake Mahogany Wooden Boat which needs restoration

I have the above boat that was my grandfather's which has been stored in a garage for the past 25 years and is in need of restoration.

I know the boat is worth some money, but I don't have the means to restore it so I'd like to sell it as is.

I need pointers on how to go about this.

All wooden construction, no motor, approx. 16 to 18 feet long.

I live in Mass. and am going to take pictures, but the boar is in CT so I will be taking pics of it.

It is in a garage so photos will follow.

We need to sell this boat as this property is for sale (estate sale).

Thank you.
