Fall 2008 (Issue No. 41)

FREE OWENS CRUISER 30'

1965 OWENS CRUISER 30' -- FREE "to a good home." Owner says, "I refurbished (her) from 2001-2004, the engines were rebuilt in 2000, and now have only 40hrs on them. I also have quite a lot of spares from a similar boat which I scrapped in 2003. The engines came from my original Owens, of the same type, and were rebuilt in 2000. They were originally 305 Flagships, gas, but were bored out to make them 327s now. They currently have 40 hours on them since rebuild. When I salvaged this boat and rebuilt it, I used the engines, transmissions, gas tanks, props and shafts, rudders, instruments, pumps etc. from the old one. I replaced any bad wood, inc decks, lower 2ft of the transom, several planks on the port side, repainted it, and launched it in 2003. Work continued thru 2004, new canvas was fitted, new glass in side windows, new vinyl on roofs, and that was about it." According to the owner, the boat was last in the water in September, 2007.

Owner says, "I am prepared to give it away to a good home. It is currently sitting on blocks in the boat yard at the Marina, under shrink wrap. It needs one new battery, and a few bottom planks need to be re-set, other than that I believe it to be in good shape." Asking: FREE "to a good home." Boat located Lagoon City Marina in Brechin, ON.
