'Jolly Giant' to sell
by Rick Cuttriss
(Catharines Ont. Canada)
Hello I have a 1950 Grew "Jolly Giant" 23 foot Honduras Mahogany inboard.
I have stripped the boat down for repair.
The dowel plugs have been removed for removing the screws on the ribs ect.
The boat has everything that was on it when new.
Entire boat was hand sanded but is now grey.
It has a beautiful full bench front seat with center drop leaf to allow access to the rear.
It has a center mount Buchannon inboard six which is original to this boat.
The motor has been stripped down and soda blasted.
The crank has been ground.
All parts are there but will need a rebuild.
Lights, siren work.
All original, seats are there but good only for templates to make new ones.
Six planks have been removed from port and starboard bow, stem may need work.
Steering wheel, column and cables are all there, along with all original chrome and gauges.
You would not have to go on a scavenge hunt for parts.
I'm in St. Catharines Ont. Canada..firstname.lastname@example.org
There are only a few of these "Jolly Giants " left and there is one for sale in Port Dover, completely restored, asking price is $89,000 Canadian.
I'd like to get $1,500 for this boat and am not open to lower offers.
I just want to see this old beauty saved.
