      1926 FELLOWS & STEWART 32' RAISED DECK CRUISER -- "ANY REASONABLE OFFER"
The story of this boat took an interesting turn when I was contacted by someone who was convinced he knew something about her.
He wasn't an old wooden boat guy.  He was an old silent film buff and believed this boat was built for a famous actor of the silent era.

FREE BOAT: 1952 DOWNEAST 30' PICNIC CRUISER

1932 ELCO 33' CRUISER -- BEST OFFER

The model is believed to be a Cruisette.  "I would love to see someone rescue this classic boat. She has been under wrap for several years and while in need of restoration, I would imagine she is still salvageable for the right owner."     <PICS+INFO>
