workshop ?
by: Johnny

just curious - - - did you build this
beautiful boat outside and just kept it
covered with a tarp ?? or, do you have a
workshop or garage to work in and just take
it outside for the photos ??
was it easy to manage with turning it over etc.
Just wondering how the weather was for you.

1961 16' Cruiser 202

My Boat 1961 16' Cruiser 202

She old and beat up but I'm going to make her float again.

Can anyone tell me if these boards are plywood with veneer over the top and if this is a relatively easier fix than replacing the entire board from front to back?

All these planks are bolted on.

I have a similar Thompson
by: Dan M.

I have a 16' 1958 Thompson that looks nearly identical to your Cruisers with the same problem.

The deck was neglected and either needs to be replaced or patched and varnished.

I've had it in the garage for 10 years waiting to find the time to make her float again also.

The structure is pretty solid, but I'll need to do some work to the transom as there's some cracks between the planks.

I also have a 13'-6" 1950 Thompson cedar strip fishing boat that I restored 10 years ago.

Been using it on small lakes in my area (just west of Milwaukee) I have a 1952 Martin 10 hp to move her around the lake.

Comfortable for two people and not too much gear.

Gets lots of looks from the guys with the 20' bass boats with twin 250's.

They get from one end of the lake to the other in 3 minutes, takes me 8...big deal!

just happen upon this site
by: Chris

I just happen upon this site and thought I'd join so that I could in the course of time hopefully tap into the vast knowledge many of the folks have in respect to wood boats and restoring them.

I have no experience with wood boats, but love their character.

I recently purchased a 1961 16" Cruiser 202 and only today realized she's gonna need a full restoration most likely.

But, this is why I bought it.

I'll post some pics of it in its current state soon.

By the way, my home port is Green Bay, WI
