This boat is beautifully restored in a bare wood condition. She was professionally skinned and rebuilt with all new solid 1/2" deck, hull and transom mahogany, and has a painted epoxy bottom. My understanding from former owner is that $65K was put into her to get her in current condition. What the boat has and does not have to the best of my knowledge is listed as follows > Wood rub rails, (no foredeck raised rails or windshield support board) > metal rub rails > ceiling boards, (need work) > Under seating floor-boards > Driver seat and seat back rebuilt new wood > New 2nd seat made but requiring refinement > Believe aft bench seat riser present. > Bilges and interior hull completely painted fresh > The hardware she has is re-chromed, including wind-screen frame. (very few pieces missing, (cutwater, instrument panel and instruments) > Under-water gear present > No engine, ( was, #K-6793), but readily re-powered. > Motor box in need of repair, or re-build to suit new engine. > Steering rod and box and column,(no wheel) > Lift eyes, rods and brackets > Exhaust tubing > Fuel tank straps, (no tank), No trailer. Though I did not restore this boat to her current condition, I am a Professional Restorer with many Concours winning and 1st place show boats to my credit. I have title to the boat, and as is she is a steal at $7,500. You will need a trailer. This is a wonderful project boat for someone with the time and resources to finish her. Or, we can discuss having me finish the project for you. I will email more photos upon request. I am in California and can be reached at 530-477-6702 10am-3pm PST. Or, emailed at
