FREE BOAT: 1957 CHRIS CRAFT 25' SEA SKIFF

"We are looking for a good home for our 1957 Chris Craft 25' Sea Skiff which is in early restoration phase. Original engine is on board.

Summer 2014 (Issue No. 64)

1939 ELCO 30'

FREE BOAT: 1939 ELCO WEEKENDER 30'

Boat owner Josh and the 1939 Elco 30' named PRUDENCE were characters in a children's book series published by Flat Hammock Press. In the first book, Scratch the Boatyard Cat : "Scratch, a feral cat, finds a home with Josh aboard Prudence, an old wooden boat in an old-fashioned boatyard. Along with witnessing the everyday goings on of the yard, Scratch and Josh learn that they must share the waterfront with others, both friendly and otherwise."  The boat is powered by a 60 horse power diesel motor. The owner is willing to give the boat away for free to someone who is willing to restore PRUDENCE.  [3 photos]  <PICS+INFO>
