1940 Cruiser NEEDS SAVING,FREE

HERE'S A REAL RESTO PROJECT FOR SOMEBODY WITH A BRAVE HEART and lots of time on their hands. The boat can be hd for the hauling. Read the story. Pete
Looks like you'll need to go to Bone Yard Boats.com to get the text and all the pictures.
The whole hull is planked with white cedar and is good exept for a place at the bow. I believe the boat is in Pennsylvania.
OK THE THIRD LINK IS THE ONE FOR THE WHOLE STORY. PETE

Handsome boat... or well-seasoned firewood?

Hmmm, Pennsy... would love to take her lines, and some more photos...

A small day cruiser would make a nice project for a skilled ship's carpenter with knowledge about this sort of thing.

Which leaves me out---.

Incidentally, the Richardsons were built near where I live.

Tom, some people would spend the big buck to bring something like this back to life---.

As for me, I tend to agree with you---.

There doesn't look like there is much original brightwork left to work with---.
