This was a 27 month project from laying the keel to the inaugural voyage. Every inch of this beauty was constructed by the seller and his wife. No kit built boat here. Before I got to go out and see the vessel I was able to look of the designs that were done n the sellers home office. Also if you are concerned about quality and seaworthiness, this seller has rebuilt airplanes and resold them. All this done in the builders basement at his lake home. This was his 10th boat to either build or restore. HE built a 47 foot steel cutter that sailed from West Africa to the United States.
The design itself is a two-thirds replica of a Prohibition-era rum runner. This can be considered a William Frost style boat from the early 20th century. The hull design is very efficient and designed to out run all of the boat of her time.
This is a dry hull design with 3 layers of 1/4 inch timber that was formed, shaped and glued together with epoxy. This is a strong hull.
As the seller says this boat is about the journey and not the destination. He says that life is like a glass of water. As you drink from it you refill it. You can take the time to sip from it but to get the full experience and slug it down and fill it right back up again.
This is more than a one of a kind boat. This is a boat that will carry with it a history that you can pass on for generations to come. If you have dreamed of sailing in a true classic then this is the boat that you need to be looking at and buying!!!
