Originally from Lake Erie.

Sea Skiff --- power cruiser
Semi displacement Hull

1967 Lapstrake Construction, TEAK foredeck, Marine plywood bottom.

31 Feet , 11.5 ft beam

Flying Bridge / twin helms

Twin Ford 289 V8 @ 2 X 210 Horsepower
Velvet Drive transmission

In 13 years as owner engines have never needed major work (rebuilt prior to 2000) - just tune ups since then.

I have never pushed them beyond 3500 RPM.
At that speed she is planing and achieves 20 Knots via GPS

Berths for six , but thats ridiculous.
Two adults and a child is reasonable ----- plus day guests

Stripped and repainted professionally with Awlgrip in 2006

Always stored indoors and serviced by trained marine mechanics

I change the oil myself :-)

In need of fresh canvas -----
some wood being replaced this winter -- very minor.

An insurance survey will be performed in spring/ summer 2014

Open to realistic offers, do not expect to recoup purchase price and investment since purchase in 2000

I have many pics , including shop work completed and online videos
