FREE BOAT:  1905 LAWLEY SLOOP 49'

VEGA was designed by F.D. Lawley as Hull #551 and built in South Boston in 1905 by Geo. Lawley & Son at their City Point yard. Her original name seems to have been URSULA II.  Owner says, "It was our father's dream to finish this boat and spend his retirement sailing around the world. He did a lot of work on it, but it was too much and he died before he could finish. We would like to see his work finished and the boat sailing again. The main issue is to find someone with the care and interest that will restore this boat..."  [11 photos]   <PICS+INFO>   <ENLARGE PIC ABOVE>

September 2013

FREE BOAT:  1947 ELCO 47' -- FANQUI

We thought FANQUI was adopted last fall, but that deal fell apart.  She is once again available.  The boat itself is FREE TO A GOOD HOME, but there are storage fees owed to the boatyard.  38 more photos just added -- lots of interior and deck shots.  [98 photos]  <PICS+INFO>
