MISS YA YAH
by Bob Corson
Named after my Great Grand Daughter, it is a 14' 1958 Penn Yan Mahogany Captivator.
It is in decent condition but needs attention.
I am 78 years old and generally work on Ford Mustangs and so am not an experienced boat man.
I do need a side plank repair near the transom, just under the splash rail.
The so-called plank is 1-1/8" wide and 5/16" thick outer plank sets directly on a layer of plastic which is over 3/16" X 3" cedar on 7/16" oak ribs on 6" centers.
These are all sound except for the 5/16" outer plank. (only about an inch long piece is "punky"
This is directly under the splash rail, which I have partly removed.
I have long wanted a small three deck runabout that I remember as a kid...
It will be powered by a 25HP 1994 Mercury outboard.
My best to all,
Bob Corson in Maine
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.
