Looking for Old Wooden Cruiser

by Steven


I am searching for a 28 - 36' cruiser built between 1920 and 1941.

I am more interested in a project boat than a restored vessel.

I like Elco, Richardson, Wheeler, Dawn, Matthews, etc, but will consider others

Do you know of any such boats in your area?

For sale in lady smith harbour,
by: j jarvis

There just happens to be a seventy five ft cruiser for sale in lady smith harbour.

This was used for the navy cadets two six 71 gm in fine shape.

Flush aft deck large enough for a dance party with all the work done on hull.

Topside needs paint but all the bells and whistles still on board.

The man worked and lived on it for the summer but lots of albertens leave there boats here and just come for the winter you could live on it as is he is looking for 20.000 which I know he has alredy spent on the hull.

Make a grate charter boat and its solid wood.

I will try to get pictures hotrodstudie@hotmail.com

Have you tried the Bone

It might be a good place to start looking, and it will give you a feel for what is out there and their prices.
