Good Day Folks,
I am new to the Wooden Boat Forum and I need your help.
I have just come into posession of an old mahogany boat and I have no idea what make it is or if it is in good condition.
It looks like it needs some new ribs to the inside. I honestly don't know.
It is going to be a project for the next couple years, so if she needs a lot of work that's ok.
Definitely needs some sanding and tlc.
It came with a 40 horse Johnson(made in 1960).
Hasn't seen the light of day in 36 years.
Thanks for any help you can give me guys.

Bucko, Welcom to the WBF.
Whip out the digital, and post some pics.
Also, look for #'s stamped into the frames, back by the transom, sometimes facing the bow, sometimes the stern.
Not much detail in your post, would be impossible to guess, might be a ....

Here’s how to post photos on this forum:
First - don’t attach photos. Most web forums don’t allow it, and space limitations are the main reason why.
Second - Instead of attaching them to a thread, post the pics on the web somewhere. You have a free website area with any paid ISP’s email account, or use www.picturetrail.com, flickr, photobucket or other free image hosting service.
Once posted on the web, right-click the image to copy the URL (web address). Always test ﬁrst by pasting the image URL into the window of a web browser and see if the image displays.
Remember, the IMAGE URL will end in .jpg, not .htm or .html. URLs ending in .htm are the page that the image is at, not the image location itself. If the image URL ends in other code, try deleting everything after the “xxxxxx.jpg” part of the URL to get it to display on web forums.
Third - once posted on the web, try this procedure while logged in to this Forum:
1. Click the “User CP” link in the browser window in the top left of the menu bar.
2. Click the “Edit Options” link about 1/4 of the way down the left column.
3. In the “Misc Options” at the bottom of the next page, select “Enhanced Interface” from the pulldown list.
4. Once this interface has been selected, in any “Reply” window you can click the “insert photo” icon --> a little yellow square icon with the stamp in the upper right corner, the mountains in the lower center.
5. Once the little dialog box titled “Please enter the URL of your image” comes up, paste the URL of the photo in the ﬁeld.
If unsure of the procedure, test ﬁrst by pasting the image URL into the window of a web browser.
