Here are some pictures of the PennYan we started on this fall. We are getting close. I might have missed the boat on this one. I couldn't get any real good info on the other forums on this issue. When we got it, it was glassed under the rails- so we made it pretty and dry. Don't know if it affected the value or not. Any Penn Yanners out there?
I apologize in advance for the picture links- I have tried the setting changes that were suggested, but I still can't make them work!!

Just in case you don't know this, the "DSD" in your serial number suggests it is a "DSDCommodore14 x 53 x 21StriptiteOakbow deck1954-1956"
Penn Yan Commodore model with the above dimensions, striptite construction and Oak trim built between 54 and 56.

Ain't they a piece o sex, with hips an all? Grew up in Rochester and saw a lot of em down on the Lakes. Not too many on Ontario. I seem to remember that they were not strong enough for too much water skiing.
