Is this $400 boat with a twist in the keel a bargain or firewood
I saw a boat, motor (that also needs some work) and trailer going for $400.
The boat definitely needs some work.
This would be my first boat project as well.
Most of the cosmetic stuff seems doable.
My main concern is the twist that is noticeable (I will try to include a picture).
Standing square to the transom, the front 1/2 to 1/3 of the boat is deviated to the right and a little clockwise.
I am sure that most anything is fixable with enough money and know-how, but how serious of a job would it be to straighten her out.
I didn't find any other problems that seemed insurmountable.
I didn't notice any rot (again I am a beginner), although it has just been stored on a trailer in a field in east Texas.
Any advice would be appreciated.
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.
