(St. Louis, MO)

16' - Length,
67" - Wide,
27" Depth,
465 lbs.

Hull Number A70879 O.

1957 Thompson Lapstrake Sea Coaster, double cockpit.

Trailer is included.

Purchased Boat in 2003, removed hardware, and sanded bottom.

Top side is new wood - never stained.

The hull/gunwale in good shape.

Hull has been sanded to the original.

The wood frame for the windows has been stored in my basement and has been stained.

All original chrome has been removed and stored also.

Boat has been in my St. Louis garage since 2005 when I purchased.

I do not have the room/equipment to finish correctly and would like to sell to make room for cars in my garage.

The 1975 Holsclaw D-1250/75 is in the backyard.

I believe this boat is in really good shape and will make a great restoration project.

Also, I have several yards of a bright red marine vinyl which we expected to use for the seats.
