I have recently purchased a 1962 Century Resorter.

The previous owner had problems with the bottom taking on water,can you refer me to anybody in Dallas/Ft Worth that is familiar with repairing these boats?

email or call Hugh 214 808 5060

1956 century resorter

Hugh, this boat may need an upgrade.

Post a picture, this will tell your readers a good idea of what’s up.

Fine boat still sought after so, take your time.

Mike has had a few of these boats on this site.

If you go on google look up your boat you may see it.

Back in the day gas was cheap and a little water here and there would make the wood to swell.

But wet wood on a planning hull cost money so that’s why I say a picture.

if its planked may need work metal flashing on the bow maybe, problem you may want to glass it to the water line.

There is the century club you can connect with them,

Good luck,
Cal
