Two 1949 Century Sea Maids.
by Matt Kaylor
Need to sell 1949 century sea maids. Is it worth it to restore one before selling?
My father has owned two 1949 century sea maids that have been in storage for quite some time and we now need to sell them.
Everything on both boats is completely original.
One has a fireball 165 and one has a fireball 135.
They need lots of work.
We have stripped the varnish off one and need to replace a board.
Both need to be restained and re-varnished.
Both need the interior redone and both need the engines rebuilt.
I was hoping someone might be able to help us out with the value of restoration sea maids such as these.
I would have time this summer to restore one but
I am wondering if it would be worth.
Thanks for any help.
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
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
