Should I or Should I not?

by Michael Stephens
(Mastic, NY USA)

1957 Richardson salon cruiser, so I am told.

I cannot find any pictures of it on the internet.

Under 10k.

Both heads need to be replaced and there is rot in the ceiling above the front head about 2x2 section.

Engines replaced in 2000 with about 119hrs.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Mike

Thanks for the advice and the link, #

I hope to look at it further next week, when I have a friend coming out to the Island.

Survey
by: Mike

Well, she looks pretty good in the photo but what is she like under the waterline?

The heads shouldn’t be too much of a problem to fix.

But before spending serious money you really need to get her out of the water and give her a survey.

Return to Wooden Boat Projects...

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 the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
