View Full Version : Could they at Least Throw A Tarp On It?

1964 Lyman on eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31271&item=4536309455&rd=1)
Check out what's on eBay. Too bad they were too lazy to cover the boat. The brightwork will take some effort to get it back. Check out the sign though. :D

Katherine...the tarp is an accessory....
I asked the boatyard a question last week about what it would cost to have THEM do the varnish....The concensus was 350 hours labor plus parts and material...Figuring this out..in $, it came out to $18,500.00....And should be done every year.... :eek:
And you wonder why I do it....And why Uncas is covered in the winter and the mast/boom/club foot are in the barn.

I haven't figured out why fibreglass boat owners don't cover their boats, let alone wooden boat owners. I cover for the winter with a complete frame, right down to the water line on both sides.

Bee's covered in tarps right now. She was supposed to have one of those temporary garage structures over her, but that's another story. Hopefully I'll get it up before the spring rains set in too much.

Screw the boat, I want that trailer!
Uncas, That's just about what my yard quoted me for Varnish as well...funny how big that number is.
One more look at the stem, and she is shot. I bet that you could stick your hand in 2" into the muck up in the V-birth stem area. I love Lyman's but this one was ridden hard and put away wet...to rot.

Its not a loss yet, but is a long term resto but I know some who would slather on some goo and go for a ride next weekend.

And then good old MD. has the environmental tax....a tax on all work done on boats....including wiring..
This little tax can be put on two threads....
So Noah...did not take that into account in the cost of varnishing Uncas....

I've seen boats in much better shape than this go for a lot less than $1600. What a mess. But 36 bids! I don't know about the stem, it might just be the rail underneath that's bad. What's it called anyway?

I'm not sure that I would ever buy a boat off e-bay.....unless I had a good look at it instead of pics which can be doctored.....
Tere is a boat at my yard which was bought on e-bay...It's on the hard...and believe me it is in bad shape. The owner moved to TN and has tried to find some hauler to bring it down....No takers....no one dares to put it on a trailer....
The outcome...the yard is giving it to the fire department for a controlled boat burn on the water....Now there is not only a good move...as it is a boating community but it gets it out of the way....
PS...different subject... I see the lady that grilled two pieces of wonderbread and found the face of Mary on it...sold on e-bay for what...28,000, is now selling the pan it was grilled in...Any takers?

Uncas, I bought Bee off of eBay.

Okay...I batting .50......I don't even think you would consider the crate here at the boatyard....Katherine....as a possiblilty....
Actually, I'm really happy for you and when you get the Bee in the water, everyone will have to get together with a little bubbly...throw one bottle against her bow and let us waste the rest... :D

There's better places to look for a sound Lyman to restore than e-bay.
.........or come to Ohio and I'll show you a few I've had my eye on. ;)
like this 1963 25 footer $3500....
or this 1963 25 footer $4500 ....
or this perfect 1963 25 foot soft top sleeper $18,000.....
Lyman's are great boats always worth a look. :cool:
