Rescuing an old Wooden Boat from the fire..
Some friends of mine knew I was looking for a wooden boat.
About a year or so one of them called me and wanted me to have a look at a boat they had.
When I get there,they had blazed a fire and one of them had started a chain saw.
The whole thing seemed to be a joke from their side.
They didn't expect me to have any interest of that vessel at all.
But they were wrong.
When I saw that beautiful shape and condition of the boat, I begged them on the spot not to start the destroying.
I went home for my trailer and had it transported home.
We're only dealing with a 20Ft motor skiff.
But even more necessary to rescue her.
Several of the boards must be replaced.
I made a new keel, some new frames, and a lot of work remain before its done.
I'll promise to add pictures when I have the boat restored.
