This is a fine example of a classic boat.

All new upholstery and interior.
Boat bottom has "West System" which is a 2 part system applied below the water line
Electrical system is 12 volt with rotary battery isolator switch. Pigtail installed for a battery charger.
Have numerous large size (Approx 2' X 3') build drawings from the factory.
All factory documentation and factory service manuals for all components.
Factory build sheet dated 1961
2 new 12 volt batteries.
Boat has been stored indoors with cover on in a climate controlled building for the last 9 years.

The only part on the boat that is not factory stock are a pair of Bennett trim tabs that are electrically over hydraulic operated by the operator which greatly improve the ride and handling.
They can be seen in the photos at the rear of the boat just below the water line.
Take a look at the pictures and give a call to set an appointment to check out this one of a kind beauty.

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.
