Just received my Good Old Boat newsletter with this message that I thought I'd pass along to the WB Forum:

"I have a 1926 burger schooner in need of a home. It is 36.5 feet, twin
masted. It is kept in Belgium, Wis., 45 miles north of Milwaukee. I live
with my parents, and they are selling their house this year, so I have no
place for it. The boat needs much attention, but it is mostly complete --
all riggings, sails, motor, masts, etc. The interior is gutted, and half
of the deck is missing. I tried getting the museum in Manitowoc (Wis.) to
take it, but all they wanted was the plaque stating that it was built in
Manitowoc. Anyway I would like to sell it or donate it. If I sell it, I
don't want much. I just don't want to burn the boat this spring if I
can't find a home for it. Photos are available by email.
