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. Has been stored
inside or covered since 2010 when we took it on as a project. The previous
titled owner stated he had it in the water in 2003. The boat comes
from Ohio. I have the original manual and several titles. Stripped
most of the paint from the hull. Hoping to restore it, but after shoulder
surgery and working full time for a corporation and also owning a small

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]
