FREE 1949 MATTHEWS STOCK CRUISER 39'.  Hull number 324. Owner says, "Greetings. I got your address from fellow Matthews owners. I have a stock cruiser that's in the water in east central NJ. Having just been given another boat more suited to my circumstances, must find new home for this old boat. I've had the Matthews 4 years and had been remodeling her to suit my needs. As it is, boat is gutted from the helm back, no engines, steering or tanks. Was powered by twin V-8's. Was planning to install a small single diesel. Couplings, shafts and wheels are still there, also rudders with a tiller. Therefore, she's high on the waterline. Beam about 12' length 39'6". Hull planking is good, transom needs work and lower cabin sides need help, topsides still watertight. Not eager to part with her, but..." Asking: FREE to a Good Home. Contact Jeff at ....  (NJ).

  "My boat is gone. Thank-you so much!"

My boat is gone. Thank-you so much!

I was impressed at the interest [generated by Bone Yard Boats]

Her new owner... trucked her Indiana sight unseen.

Update 8/21/2010:

David, thanks for your interest. Yes we got the 1949 Matthews safe and sound to Indiana and she looks in good shape for restoration. I will keep you posted, however it will be a while before we get to her. Have a few projects ahead of her. Thanks again.
