Len informed Bone Yard Boats that he must find a new owner for this boat by May 1st, and added, "I can give some free slip rental once an owner is found till she can have other arrangements made, thank you in advance, Len"

FREE 1968 VIKING SPORTFISHER. Back in May of 2009, Len P. alerted Bone Yard Boats to the dire situation with the 1951 Chris Craft 54' submerged at the dock at the Maurgale Marina in Glen Burnie, MD. Initially listed as a 1950 50-footer, that Chris Craft was pictured on the back of the Summer '09 issue, complete with scuba diver on her cabin roof. By the time the Fall '09 issue went to print, I was able to report that a Bone Yard Boats subscriber had determined that this vessel was, in fact, the boat that belonged to his grandfather in the 1950's and 60's. This BYB subscriber is now in the process of rescuing his family's long lost Chris Craft.

Well, Len P. brings another vessel to the attention of the Bone Yard Boats crew -- a 1968 Viking Sportfisher: "This is the marina that you helped out over Hull #1, 1950 Chris Craft Sea Queen. They are ready to raise and restore her, thanks to you! Now I have something a lil newer -- a 1968 Viking Sport Fish, free for one of your readers. Her hull is sound, and in need of power. Her paint's peeled, and it would be a shame for her to end up in the chipper.

"The power was removed, 318 Chrys with 1:91 gears; the props and shafts are awaiting their new mates for power. The worst spot is the cabin corner port side. It would truly be a crime to have to dispose of her. The former owner has left the country, and I will provide MD title DNR paperwork per 8-722 for the person who takes possession from us. It would make someone a very nice classic vessel. I did have the chance to run her back in '02 and she rode well... She was truly a joy to run back in her day." The boat is at the Maurgale Marina, 864 Nabbs Creek Road, Glen Burnie, MD 21060 (410-437-0402). Contact Len at lpoole101@yahoo.com (email is best). Asking: FREE TO A GOOD HOME.
