FREE BOAT: 1960's DOWNEAST 42'

Owner says, "I've been around boats all my life, as well as doing design work, and some construction. The "Downeast 42" was always my favorite design.  In the 1980's, I was keeping my eye out for one for sale, and for years saw none. Then one day..." [3 photos]  <PICS+INFO>

FREE BOAT: 1960 MATTHEWS 42'
