Some more detailed photos and mechanical drawings can be found here.

This is a write-up of the 1000 mile trip from New Jersey to Charlseton, SC. right after I bought the boat.

A classic wood cruiser built of mahogony over oak, with a beautiful mahogony interior. Twin Chrysler 340's and 250 gallons of fuel. An Onan 6.5kw generator will power the marine reverse-cycle A/C-heater so you can pilot the boat in comfort all year around. When the weather is good, the flybridge offers boating in the sun. And with the GPS, Loran and VHF radios, you'll never be lost. The fire supression system, fume detector and CO2 detector adds more to the saftey. A pressurized water system & water heater, full sized refridgerator, 3 burner stove w/oven, Crown II head and a seperate stand-up shower completes this totally self-contained vessel.

View from flybridge

Nice layout for the flybridge. Comfortable helm seat slids forward. Note: The canvas has bad zippers and torn plastic, but it's available for repair or as a pattern.


Folding seats on the bed actually make two more beds.

Port side window needs rebuilding

Port Window

Starboard deck right at the window needs quite a lot of work. The upper decks have been epoxied and are in excellent shape.

Starboard Deck

Port stern corner. Surveyor called this a "Servicible repair" a few years ago, but the paint is cracking at the seams.

Port Stern

Starboard stern corner is a little worse than the port side. Same comments from the surveyor.
