FREE BOAT: 1965 WILLIAM GARDEN SLOOP 34'

Hull is mahogany over oak. PEMADUMCOOK appeared in the Fall 2013 issue with the tale of how she got her name. Her asking price was $6000 then, but she is now FREE TO A GOOD HOME.  [33 photos]  <PICS+INFO> 


1960 Century Resorter 16'

1960 CENTURY RESORTER 16'

"I haven't had the time to finish it and likely won't anytime soon. Someone else needs to finish and enjoy. All the hard (and expensive) work has been done. Replaced the transom frame and planking, replaced the foredeck and topside planking as well. Replaced several bottom planks, refastened the bottom. That was in 2004. It's been in my barn on the second floor (wooden) since that time.

Comes with single axle 1960 trailer.  The motor is an original Gary Marine Fireball 170hp V8 backed by a velvet drive transmission; both have 542 hours on the hour meter. The motor ran..."  [20 photos]  <PICS+INFO>

If you refresh the page, the top two boat photos change.

1951 Chris Craft Commander 34'

1951 CHRIS CRAFT COMMANDER 34'

"Dad did his best to maintain the boat. In the last few years his declining health limited his ability to use the Chris. But he was a live aboard and loved the boat. I hope to find someone who will love it as much as he did..."  <PICS+INFO>


FREE BOAT: 1972 GRAND BANKS TRAWLER 32'

FREE BOAT: 1972 GRAND BANKS TRAWLER 32'

"I was leaving to go overseas and was convinced by someone that they wanted the boat and would take care of it. I returned from Afghanistan mid April and a couple of weeks ago I got a message from the storage yard saying the boat needed to be moved ASAP..."  [9 photos]  <PICS+INFO>

This boat appears to be in the middle of a land-clearing project and needs to be moved "within a week", and I think that clock started ticking on June 4th.  Judging by the tracks in the dirt, there is some earth-moving equipment present.  The proximity of heavy equipment to an old wooden boat causes me some concern (if you catch my drift).  FREE TO A GOOD HOME.


1952 Downeast Picnic Cruiser 30'

1952 DOWNEAST PICNIC CRUISER 30'

"She was built on Long Island NY of cedar riveted to white oak frames. She has a very low hour Perkins 4 cylinder diesel, JCR radar, fish finder, chart plotter, depth sounder, auto pilot. Sleeps 2 in v-berth below, with marine head. All electronics in newly installed condition..."  [7 photos]  <PICS+INFO>

Two KIEKHAFER MERCURY MARK 58AE Outboards.  "Two 45hp short shaft electric start motors for sale. One has carbs rebuilt and new timing belt... The other one is a good running motor with new seals in lower end..."   <PICS+INFO>


1957 CHRIS CRAFT SEA SKIFF 20'

1957 CHRIS CRAFT 20' UTILITY

"This boat has a universal i-4 engine that was properly stored.  Very good condition.  All-in-all the moisture meter shows no major damage. I need this boat to be sold and moved. I would like to see someone do something with it..."  [15 photos]  <PICS+INFO>


1958 Chris Craft Sea Skiff 26'

1958 CHRIS CRAFT SEA SKIFF 26'

"It was used very often – daily – and taken care of well, but its looks were never important. She is an old lady, that gets the job done, that has never had Botox, a face lift, or make-up..."  [14 photos]  <PICS+INFO>
