Student boat building projects wanted

I am looking for wooden boat restoration projects for my students at a carpentry trade school.

We are located in Alabama and are looking for wooden boats in 16' range to restore.

I have almost no money to offer, but can provide a tax deductable donation reciept and letter.

Wooden book from 1950 kit
by: Anonymous

I have a wooden boat that was built in 1950 by my father.

I am in Austin Texas and would love for you to have it for your class.

It has been on the trailer in my garage for the last 15 years.

It has the originial motor and skis etc.

70' Carolina
by: Captain Chuck

I have a 70' Carolina that could use a lot of work.

I am 71 and need help to organize the vessel for live aboard.

I can use a lot of help. I'm also trying to sell my 32' grand banks to pay to remodel the big boat.

I'm in Ocean Springs, MS.

Does it cost to have a boat restored?

How does this work?

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
